Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
Data gathered throughout Hawaii's six-campus community college system shows that the number of diplomas awarded during 1974-75 totaled 1,782, an increase of 18 percent over the previous year. Growth was evident in all diploma categories: Associate in Arts degrees increased 15 percent; Associate in Science degrees increased 22 percent; and Certificates increased 7 percent. Vocational degrees represented 69 percent of the total granted, although vocational majors comprised only 38 percent of fall enrollment; the Associate in Arts degree accounted for another 29 percent, although liberal arts majors comprised 49 percent of fall enrollment. The graduates were evenly distributed by sex. Included are two tables showing the number of diplomas awarded by each campus since 1970-71 and the number and types of degrees conferred during 1974-75. It is suggested that the study might be helpful in assessing the effectiveness of various programs since student persistence to completion shows wide divergence particularly when vocational and liberal arts programs are compared.
