Tuition revenues are at $1,522,000. Our target
was $1.41 million. The estimate will go down when we purge the unpaid
registrations and resolve the account receivables collection.
One of the reasons for non-resident tuition revenue increase
relates to the Maui Language Institute.
Forty-nine students transferred from the Maui Language Institute into the credit program. The MLI
program is growing; however, it is limited by housing and staffing. They
are pretty much at capacity. Alvin is looking into creating an international student
office to assist with international student
needs. The office would provide direct serviceto students who are here or to connect them to the services that they need through email,
First Week Issues

(1) Pat Adams represents us at the system wide level.
(2) Pat Adams, Mona Stevenson, and Jill Fitzpatrick are overseeing the local
recruiting, primarily newspaper, press releases.
(3) An outline of planned mainland and international marketing efforts
U.S. Mainland: The National Association of College
Admissions Counselors has a year-round College Fair. Fall semester
focuses on northern states, spring semester focuses on southern states from
west to east coast. We are looking at
participating from October 30-November 3. RafiBoritzer will possibly be leading this effort.

with a brief 20-second welcome and a couple of commercials, some pictures of
the campus and possibly some items from the business bureau. Goal is to have CD done in time for
Display Board: The display board is here.
Website: Concern was expressed that the MauiCommunity College piece was not as prominent as the University of Hawaii piece on the website. MauiCommunity College was less prominent than “The
College on Maui”. This was done to reach non-resident students who may
not understand what a community college is. Clyde asked committee members to review the website and come with
solutions to our next meeting.
Some suggestions given were to have pictures of a diverse student population, especially
on the international trips; to sell not just our campus, but also Maui. It was noted that images
must be program related. The Marketing committee has already been
working on this with an international recruiter from HPU. The committee
has also been getting student feedback.

Organization of the UH Community College System: This will be part of the
system wide self-study. We are still waiting to learn from WASC whether the mini
commission will materialize. If it does, we will be asking for a
postponement of our self-study to review first ABIT grads and reschedule our
accreditation visit from Fall ’06 to Fall ’07.

Deficit Reversal Budgets and General Funds Restrictions
Deficit reversal budgets are due from each of the programs by September

approximately $83,000 from OralCareCenter.
Clyde will be going to the Foundation to support instructional needs. flo will check with department
chairs to see if there are any instructional
Question was asked on whether MCC was charging for facilities use for large
community events; i.e. World Hula Conference. We have a facilities use
rate plan which includes rate charges per hour/per room. The two summer
events were MCC-sponsored events and therefore were not charged for facilities

Center at the end of the month. Bob Borchers is
no longer the P.I. as of September 1. Dennis Vallaincourt
will still be working for the National Center until December. Equipment
left behind will need to be inventoried and there are some outstanding items that need to be handled. Computers will go
into ECET classroom. Need to clarify cost-sharing and equipment
inventory. David and Dan will meet to clarify.
Items to bring before the Academic
Senate: Where are we with flex scheduling? Need infrastructure in
place so students are fully informed of what they are signing up for. If
financial aid students happen to sign up for schedule that only consists of flex
scheduled classes, they need to realize the impact on their financial
aid. We need to realize too so we do not over award them which if we do may result in
an audit finding. Mix of flex and regular is okay. We need to look at whether we would be able to notify students and what the
requirements are for accreditation. floto get clarification from Elizabeth Griego. flo
asked that Cathy Bio email or fax her information from U.S. Office of
Computing Services: It was noted that the computing services need for more computer specialists
should be closely looked at. Computing Center was the top priority in the Administrative
Services program review. A possible solution is to hire with RDP funds. If we
use RDP funds, we need to look at how computing services can generate revenue to meet the sustainability
