Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Office of the Chancellor for Community Colleges.
This strategic plan for the University of Hawaii Community Colleges includes a contextual study, supported by data from the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education (NCPPHE). Statistics include: (1) Hawaii ranked with the top states in high school completion (93%), but 18-24 year olds enrolling in college in the top states was 42%, as opposed to 37% in Hawaii; (2) 16% of Hawaii 8th graders scored at or above "proficient" in math, 19% in reading, and 15% in writing (the highest states scored 33% in math, 38% in reading, and 31% in writing); (3) state grant aid targeted to low-income families as a percent of Pell grant aid to low income families was 2% in Hawaii, compared with 106% for the top states; and (4) 40% of Hawaii's community college students returned for their second year, compared with 64% in the top states. This plan also reports on the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) funding analysis for the University of Hawaii System (UHS). Among those findings: UHS, relative to peers, is collectively underfunded by $117 to $137 million. System priorities addressed in this plan include promoting learning and teaching for student success, functioning as a seamless state system, promoting workforce and economic development, developing human resources, and creating an effective infrastructure to support student learning. Appended are numerous tables and charts detailing demographic and financial statistics. (NB)
