*purge occurred on August 7, 2009

Estimated 1,300 students from spring 2009 have not registered (persistence 59%)

 

4,120 represents registrations, not headcounts.  (Although students registered, they may not have shown up in class.) 

 

Hale Haumana

Chancellor discussed future use of Hale Haumana with County of Maui Mayor and Managing Director.

 

Suzette (with Herman) to work on draft of letter to Mayor

Administrative Services

 

·         Revenue amount: $3,391,734 (23.3%)

Target: $3,377,590 (based on 25% enrollment increase)

·         Update on Proposed Budget

1.     Clyde and David working on budget; nothing definitive until negotiations are complete.

2.     $1.7 mil. enrollment growth and $1 mil. for equipment. $1 million in ARRA funds.  Total $3.7 million (to be confirmed by David)

3.     Elaine inquired whether the Academic Senate has input on the proposed budget.  Clyde responded that the Senate, through Michelle, has been providing input during previous Executive Committee meetings.

 

Academic Affairs

Alvin reported that 37 community colleges also offer 4-year degrees.

 

Alvin asked to double check number; others recall much higher number

Dr. Bresciani presentation

 

·         Yesterday’s presentation discussed:  Dr. Bresciani recommends assessing student knowledge rather than student behavior in the class.

·         Need to use data to find out the following:

1.   Why students are taking classes, but are not graduating

2.     Why students delay taking math at Maui CC longer than at any other UHCC campus.

Alvin asked to inquire with counselors if they are guiding students to register in math in their early semesters

Energy update

1.  Update on ESCO:

a.        Three vendors remaining with ability to service the college.

b.       Purchase power agreement (PPA) would be entered with vendor, freezing Maui CC’s energy costs.

c.        Vendor responsible for finding private investors that will want to take advantage of the tax breaks in order to leverage the cost of energy generating initiatives (PV panels and wind turbine).

d.       Office of Naval Research will provide equipment to monitor and measure energy output on panels. (Should be occurring during this semester).

2.   Risks:

New technologies in the future may drive the costs of renewable energy down lower than  PPA with a vendor at the set rate.

3.  Windmills:

Because there is no electricity storage, windmills are not used at night when energy use is

lower.  

4.   PUC is considering “Feed in Tariff”

a.  Distributive power

              b. Wheeling – allows us to generate power offsite

       Project $2 million for Maui CC’s Energy Costs

      AC currently down in Ka Lama 108; parts ordered

 

 

 

 

Program Reviews

 

The following program reviews were discussed and analyzed:

·         HOST

·         Human Services

·         Liberal Arts

 

 

Suzette to find out if STARS could be used to track students
