2. FY 2014 Budget Shortfall - CS

4. How aggressive do we want to be in addressing inequities of UHCC General Fund and TFSF Allocations to Maui?
· Consider using funding formula.
· Move forward but cautiously.
· Formulate both Plan A & Plan B.
· UHMC unable to rely on continued enrollment growth; continue efforts to secure additional resources.
· Focus and invest in retention; suggest or propose solutions regarding how UH Community Colleges could allocate funds in a more fair and equitable manner.
· Team with other UHCC campuses, all of which are underfunded, as a united group.
· Our initiatives should be driven by our mission – to serve Native Hawaiian students and other underserved groups; garner support for funds to continue initiatives like Achieving the Dream at community colleges.
· One funding formula may not fit all.
· Facilities have been built, but UHMC needs resources and commitment to maintain buildings and campus.
· Sense of urgency; balance between gratitude and need.
