UH campus and system teams were asked to identify large scale/high impact strategies, develop tactics necessary to implement the strategies, and prioritize next steps. Teams are currently moving forward on implementing their plans.
- Cohort programs:
Guarantee to graduate on time in Waiʻanae: a three year program, but students cannot place beyond one level of developmental courses.
- Fast track program at Pearl City campus: offering a prime time schedule with star quality faculty (18 students in first cohort).
- Fast track AA in Teaching at Pearl City campus: cohort to complete the program in 18 months (includes summer).
- Early College program:
Partnering with Waipahu High School (130 students) and Kapolei High School (60 students) in Spring 2014 to deliver Running Start courses.
- Working on drafting a legislative request for future funding of the program (currently grant funded by P-20).
- Starting five “fast-track” cohorts (AA in two years at Pearl City campus, AA in three years at Waiʻanae campus and AAT in 18 months, includes summers, at Pearl City campus).
- Exploring incentives such as scholarships after completion of certain benchmarks.
- Redesigning developmental courses and allowing students to start developmental courses earlier (in the summer).
- Developing cohort schedules and exploring the possibility to centralize scheduling.
