This document presents the Strategic Plan and Academic Development Plan for Kapi'olani Community College (KCC) (Hawaii). The goals maintain or add to current practices and directions. The Academic Development Plan should be used as a point of reference, as a planning document, as leverage for initiatives. KCC has as its mission to broaden access to postsecondary education in Hawaii by providing open-door opportunities for students to enter quality educational programs. In addition to its liberal arts transfer mission, KCC offers the state's only programs in Health Sciences and Legal Education and the only community college Nursing programs on O'ahu. The College's long-range planning process is part of a comprehensive approach which seeks to integrate academic program planning and budgeting through a participatory process involving faculty, staff, and students. Among the planned or anticipated changes are improvements in educational technology and networked communications and new models of delivery, which provide more flexibility in course offering and in responding to the changing needs of businesses and students. This report also shows some indicators of program demand, efficiency, and outcomes, which have been used as the basis for strategic decision-making. (JA)
