Program Review

University of Hawaii Maui College

Academic Year 2009-10

Executive Summary

Instruction

For academic year 2009-10, the Career and Technical Education and Liberal Arts programs submitted a total of 20 annual and 3 comprehensive program reviews. Each report included a special emphasis on an overall assessment of their outcomes at both the course and program levels. Annual reviews are reviewed by the assessment coordinator and Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs who provide constructive feedback to program coordinators. The three five-year longitudinal comprehensive reviews are reviewed by a college wide-select committee who meet with program coordinators and, in addition to the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs, provide constructive feedback to the program coordinators. As a result of this program review process, during the 2009-10 academic year, 100% of the programs have completed mapping their courses to the Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) of their program, and more than 50% of the programs have secured validation and approval of their PLOs from their respective advisory committees.

Support Programs

A total of nine UH Maui CC Academic Support programs also submitted annual program reviews as part of a comprehensive program review process for the college. These annual program reviews are also reviewed by the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs who provides constructive feedback to the center coordinators. From reference help to tutoring and testing, the number of students accessing services from The Learning Center, Library and Ka Lama Computer Center continued to increase over the previous academic year. For example, during academic year 2010, the unduplicated number of students tutored in The Learning Center increased by 22%. Moreover, of the 549 students tutored, 83% passed their classes with a “C or better”, compared to 71% of the Maui College general campus population. College outreach centers at Hana, Lahaina, and on Lanai and Molokai experienced an overall 11% increase in enrollments over spring 2009. Program review documents confirm the essential role of Academic Support Programs providing access and support for students throughout the college.

Plans

UH College will continue to refine its assessment process that was establish by a collaborative effort of campus members with special emphasis on methods to increase student learning and adding value to the student experience so students are well prepared to enter the workforce and become productive citizens of the community. The Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs will continue to follow up with program coordinators action plans articulated in the program review documents.
