An Academic Development Plan for Post-Secondary Education on the Multi-Ethnic Island of Lana'i.
Pezzoli, J. A.; McOmber, Phyllis
In 1980, Maui Community College (MCC) established the Lana'i Education Center (LEC) on the island of Lana'i to provide courses and services to island residents. Related to MCC's college-wide planning document, this Academic Development Plan outlines the planning strategies, long-range goals, and priorities specific to MCC's Lana'i efforts for 1993-1998. Introductory sections describe the history of the LEC and MCC's mission with respect to the island. Next, nine long-range goals from the college-wide plan are related to specific activities on Lana'i, including the search for a permanent LEC site. Then, after a discussion of the external and internal planning context and highlights from recent program and needs assessments, the following 13 priorities for MCC's Lana'i efforts are presented: (1) improve the quality of instructional programs and academic support services; (2) develop and implement a plan for the maintenance, renovation, and construction of facilities; (3) develop new instructional programs in response to community needs; (4) expand academic and support services using new technologies; (5) improve programs and instruction in basic academic skills as foundations for student success; (6) coordinate student support services to improve academic success and retention; (7) develop appropriate international dimensions to curricula; (8) maintain effective articulation with other colleges and the University of Hawaii; (9) establish partnerships with business and government for the economic development of Maui county; (10) implement renewal and professional development activities for faculty and staff; (11) improve administrative management; (12) improve fiscal stability; and (12) establish outreach centers for Hana, Moloka'i, and Lana'i.
