ONGOING ACTIVITIES

DATE UPDATES
December 2013
  • Statway is being taught to reduce amount of developmental coursework a student needs before enrolling in college-level statistics. Working with UHWO to ensure the coursework will transfer and students will be prepared for 300-level statistics courses.
  • Welcomed the second cohort of Lunalilo Scholars (23 students in first cohort, 30 students in second cohort). Students are specifically recruited for the program and provided additional student support services. Students are showing high levels of success.
  • Implemented a registration project to reduce the number of choices a student has to make to register. Resulted in an increase in the number of students enrolled in math and English in their first year.
  • Implemented a registration project to reduce the number of choices a student has to make to register. Resulted in an increase in the number of students enrolled in math and English in their first year.
  • Reaching out and targeting part-time students enrolled in 9-11 credits to move them to full-time.
Feb. 2013 Work Plan Update
June 2013
  • Second intake of 40 student cohort into the Lunalino Scholars program (similar to CUNY’s ASAP model). Promising results so far: scholars have higher GPAs and a 90% fall-to-spring retention versus 77% for all first-time students.
  • Examining health care programs for part-time student models/cohorts.
  • Looking at scheduling options that would let students select their schedule by selecting from columns (encourage ENG/MATH in first year). For example, column A contains ENG courses, column B has MATH courses, column C would have “high pass” courses, etc.
  • Implementing Stat-way to help students from developmental level math to get through college statistics in one year. Target for use in CTE programs and will work with UHWO on possible articulations.
Feb. 2013 Work Plan Update
Jan. 2013
  • Completed a December 2012 survey with responses from 500+ part time students. The results were presented at convocation. Part time students indicated they would like:
    • more evening and online classes
    • help with financial aid or other means of financial support (if they don’t qualify for federal aid due to their income level)
  • Participating in UH system pilots for Reverse Transfer and Auto Notation of Credentials (Certificates of Achievements for spring 2013).
