University of Hawaii
Distance and Distributed Learning Action Plan

Over the past 20 months there have been a variety of conversations about how to advance the University of Hawaii in the area of distance learning.  These have played out in a number of committee discussions, workshops, and most notably, in the preparation of the new Strategic Plans for the University of Hawaii and its major units.  

As part of the UH system-wide strategic planning process a number of Strategic Issue Teams (SITs) were formed to provide input to the planning process.  At the direction of Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs, Deane Neubauer, the SIT for Information Technology and Distance Learning was charged to follow up on the strategic planning with an Action Plan that would lay out the specific actions UH should take to move forward.  

A draft action plan was prepared and shared with the entire UH community for comment by email, memo or in an online discussion forum.  Based on the many thoughtful insights, concerns and ideas shared from throughout the University, the SIT finalized the University of Hawaii Distance and Distributed Learning Action Plan and submitted it to Interim VP Neubauer in early May 2003.
