*Summer 2009 purge occurred on June 4; purged 94 students.

 

Fall enrollment increased 62% over last year.

 

 

Governor-imposed furloughs/restrictions

University still uncertain about what will happen; governor’s furloughs/restrictions could go to the Supreme Court on appeal.  If governor’s furlough plan is struck down by the court, governor can still impose budget restrictions of the same amount.  

 

Since UH civil service employees are under the authority of the Board of Regents, a furlough plan would not apply to UH Civil Service employees.

 

Because of the economic downturn, no pay raises can be expected.  Salary reductions are possible, but not necessarily by 15%.

 

 

Prepare for increased enrollment

With the increase in enrollment, new parking areas will need to be opened; classes added; and hours for student services extended.

 

David:  Construction projects will be scheduled for minimal disruption.

 

Additional lecturers will be recruited through newspaper ads and articles.

State of the Budget

 

Revenues: $2,068,000 vs. $1,066,000 last year; a 60% increase.

We have been able to absorb restrictions this year; next year is uncertain.

Expenses need to be reduced and revenue generated.

 

 

“What’s Hot on Campus” list

President McClain has asked the chancellors to prepare a list of important happenings on each campus that will be forwarded to the new president for informational purposes.  Maui CC’s list includes such things as the new degrees, new science building, name change.

 

Additions to the list to be emailed to the Chancellor before the Monday submission deadline.

Update on Sodexo contract

Sodexo attorneys will make some minor changes in the contract and then return the contract to the college.

 

 

Hours of food service for Fall 2009 to be decided soon.

Annual Program Reviews

 

Program advisory committees have been involved in advising programs on how to prepare students for present and future workplace needs.

 

Suzette explained community college system formulas initiated this year to ensure consistency in identifying the strength of programs.  The formulas are used to determine the demand, efficiency, effectiveness, and overall health of a program. 

·         Demand is based upon the number of majors to annual new/replacement positions.

·         Efficiency is based upon class fill rate and student to faculty ratio.

·         Effectiveness is based upon degrees earned in relationship to number of majors; degrees earned in relationship to annual/new replacement positions; and persistence from fall to spring.

 

Five annual program reviews were analyzed and discussed:

Accounting

·         Overall rating; healthy

·         Number of majors, fill rate, persistence, number of degrees are all up.

·         Effectiveness rated as cautionary because of percentage of increases.

 

 

 

 

Administration of Justice

·         Overall rating is cautionary because of fill rate; numbers are improving.

·         Ryan working to recruit more students into the program; working with community law enforcement.

 

Agriculture (includes Molokai farm):

·      Overall rating: unhealthy

·      Number of majors up; fill rate, persistence rate, degrees earned down.

·      Coordinator working on creating Cultural and Natural Resources degree. 

 

ABIT: 

·         Overall rating: cautionary

·         Number of majors, fill rate up; persistence down because of small numbers.

·         Classes currently at 18-25 in 300 level courses.

·         Suzette looking into applied research area of program.

 

Auto Body Repair & Painting:

·         Overall rating: healthy

·         Persistence low because when many students get training they need, they go into the workplace. The industry does not necessarily favor graduates with degrees.

·         Some students learning skills for personal use.

·         Structural limitations; limited number of workstations for students.

·         Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (IICAR) curriculum implemented in program.

 

 

 

Program orientation dates to be set for all programs and for students who have not declared majors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To verify number of students graduating.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Program review data to be used to justify full-time AJ position.

Benchmarks for improvement goals to be set.

 

Need to determine a realistic focus for the Ag program and clarify steps for strengthening the program. 

 

 

May need to narrow electives so students can go through program together in cohort.

 

 

 

Need to encourage students to take general education courses that lead to a degree. 

 

To check with Dennis to see what kind of resources needed.

 

Need to look at state of ABRP industry in Maui County.
