This brochure highlights and updates a subset of U H performance indicators. A complete report entitled the Institutional Effectiveness Report can be found online at www.hawaii.edu/ovppp/ier/ier.html and in printed form at U H campus libraries.

This version of the U H Institutional Effectivess Report is designed to promote accessibility for people with disabilities in compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. To ensure proper functioning of assistive technology tools such as screen readers, Hawaiian diacriticals were not included and spaces between selected acronyms were added (e.g., U H). We apologize for any inconvenience.
