- Copies of
the 2003-2010 Strategic Plan were distributed. The plan is a
systemwide approach to the University system. Maui Community College
tried to align and nest its strategic plan into the system strategic
summarized the plan. The plan covers a seven-year period. It
is a living, dynamic product that will guide college decision
making. It describes who and what we are and where we want to be by
the year 2010. It outlines our function as a system and how we
relate to our sister colleges. The driving values are aloha,
collaboration, and academic freedom. There are five goals which are
the same as the system goals, except for applied research. There are
17 action strategies identified.
- The next
step will implement these priorities through action teams. All
faculty and staff were asked to sign up for one of these action
teams. Team leaders were identified. Team leaders will be
working with individual teams.
from the Chancellorsí Advisory Committee was welcomed. Comments may

Robinson will lead this effort. She is now the Assistant Vice
Chancellor designee until our official reorganization takes place.
Suzette Robinson, Marge Kelm, and Dan Kruse will continue to shape this
process and document.
- In MCCís
reorganization, flo wiger is proposed to become the Vice Chancellor of
Academic Affairs leading academic decision making and David Tamanaha is
proposed to be Vice Chancellor of Administration, leading budget, revenue and
Services and the Office of Continuing Education and Training will report
to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs on all academic related issues
and the Chancellor for resource-related concerns.
reorganization was concluded over the summer. MCC will take the next
couple of months to discuss and review the structure and should have it
finalized by end of the semester.
each campus will decide on its own structure within common
parameters. Discussion with the Western Association of Schools and
Colleges around competencies and the differences in terms of size,
faculty, institutional budgets continues.
- Each of
the CCís now has its own Chancellor. Chancellors are meeting
directly with the President of the University. A whole tier of
review was removed. This permits a streamlined view of campus
decision making and more responsive system.
systemwide reorganization will allow for broad participation with focused
discussions on strategic plan priorities. Individual campuses will
have much more autonomy. Decisions will be made with everyone
participating with recognition of all plans, resources, and requirements
The campus is
addressing the following priorities:
Association of Schools and Colleges
- There are
new expectations of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and
new standards for colleges and universities in the western states (California
and Hawai`i). The standards have been reduced from ten standards to
four standards. The focus of institutions must be on Student
must also respond to the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Jr. and Sr.
Commissions on the requirements for a bachelorís degree in Applied Business and
Information Technology Substantive Change. The Junior Commission has 130
community colleges; the Senior Commission consists of four-year colleges and
governor has lifted the restriction. However, we are
addressing the provisions of the latest collective bargaining
agreement. After teaching a full semester this term (five courses),
a faculty member will teach four courses next semester if he/she
applies. The additional workload will address many campus and
semester we offered sixty-seven classes less than we did last fall.
Our enrollment dropped 1.7%. We accommodated students by having
larger class sizes. We were more efficient in scheduling classes by
offering classes that students need. With more resources, our
enrollment would have grown.
campuses were faced with the same financial constraints. The amount
of money distributed among campuses is not equal however. Maui has
the least amount of higher education support per county
resident. VPAA Dave McClain and Chief of Staff Sam Callejo
understand that there have historical inequities and are developing a more
- Need more
information to let students know of the options available to them for
registration payment. If a student canít come up with money we have
an installment program for students who meet eligibility requirements.
- We will
need the help of our Academic Senate leadership to explain why more
resources are needed for Maui County.
Center building renovation.
Fire code upgrades.
- The Mayor
is supporting 8.4 acres of land transfer. This will take some
time; the Mayor and MCC needs to present this to the County Council.
We are also looking at private development for some A&B land near
Sears behind the service stations to house 416 beds.
Assisting: Dr. Dan Mayeda is looking at developing a facility on
our campus for dental assisting and dental hygiene programs.
The facility will provide service for dental services.
facilities: We have a commitment from the Presidentsí office to seek
design monies during the next biennium.
COLLEGE ADVISORY COUNCIL/CHANCELLORíS ADVISORY COUNCIL
were asked to think about what the composition and size should be for the
Advisory Council. Should the council continue to operate as it has
been? Suggestions were to bring new, younger people on board.
The Council should not be exclusively fundraising; the Horizons committee
will focus on fundraising.
Richard Kipper asked members for names of possible Council members.
Marilyn Fornwall will call each member for suggestions. Members were
asked to look at a wide spread of participation from geographic location,
age, and economic status. Members were also asked do email
Marilyn with a very short recap of their experience and where they are
from to get a reflection of our community participation. The Council
has at least five positions to fill.
suggestions for committee members were Jimmy Haynes from the Board of
Regents and former Regent Everett Dowling. Regent Haynes
cannot formally be a member of the Council, but he could be invited to
meet with the Council. Clyde will follow up with Everett Dowling.
- It was
suggested that we look at what is the purpose of the Council and what are
the goals of the Council first.
- It was
also suggested that the Council revisit the Horizons committee to review
what its purpose may be and to re-examine the composition and direction.
committee made up of Richard Kipper, Clyde Sakamoto, Susan Takeda, Sara
Jean Tokunaga, Bill Wong, and Marge Kelm was formed to discuss the makeup,
size, and purpose of the Council. From that we can determine the
mission of the Council.
