ONGOING ACTIVITIES

DATE UPDATE
December 2013
  • Instead of implementing an ASAP cohort model, focused on enhancing student support services. Added career services and a transcript evaluator (resulting in a reduced evaluation lag time from 3 months to 10 days), tweaking FYE and mandatory NSO programs (looking at providing advising during the week and registration on the weekends).
  • Transfer Summit held with UH Hilo (met twice) to improve the transfer of students. Additional pathways have been identified as one area to work on.
  • Reverse credit transfer (about 100 students) has been implemented and working on ensuring that the GE MOA is honored.
  • Removed all graduation deadlines and will confer degrees throughout the year. If you would like a diploma, then you would need to pay for it.
  • Contacting students who are ready to graduate or have all the requirements to graduate but have not submitted an application for graduation.
  • Faculty are taking on the advising role.
  • Created new college-level technical math and English courses for AAS degrees.
  • Five day Math Boot Camp implemented with results via pre/post placement tests showing that students are moving from the bottom placement levels to the top of the placement levels. Working to bring the program to the high schools.
