UH Maui College Assessment of Student Learning

UH Maui College Assessment of Student Learning The UH Maui College strategic planning and assessment process is guided by a Vision, Mission, Core Values and Institutional Learning Outcomes that are grounded in how UH Maui College “Inspires Learning” among our students, within our community and among colleagues. This rubric driven process is being led by faculty and staff members with strong support from administration. Each year UH Maui College degree programs collect and review evidence of a Program Learning Outcome at an exit level course appropriate for each program. Parallel to this review, an assessment team reviews one College-wide Academic and Student Learning Outcome, also at an exit level course at the level appropriate for each program. For example, this past year the English faculty led the assessment of written communication across the curricula. The outcome of this process is a list of recommendations that are emerging into planning priorities for the next year. In some cases these recommendations involve requests for funding, however, most recommendations relate to pedagogical improvements. This process is repeated annually, moving on to the review of the next program and general education outcome. Over time, each program and general education outcome is reviewed and then the process begins again in earnest.

UHMC Professor Selected for Willard Wilson Award

University of Hawaiʻi Maui College Professor Nancy K. Johnson has been selected as the recipient of the 2013 Willard Wilson Award for Distinguished Service to the University of Hawaiʻi. Johnson was hired as a probationary instructor in the nursing program in 1983 and earned full professorship in 2007. She went on to chair the allied health department from 1989 to 2012. During that time, the program grew from a few faculty members and one class per year, to more than 30 faculty, staff and clinical lecturers serving two new classes per year, with a total of 150 students per semester. Johnson has served as a key player in local and state discussions on healthcare workforce needs, caring for the aging population, meeting dental care needs for the underserved and building the Hawaiʻi State Nursing Consortium, which allows students to seamlessly transition from Maui College’s program to UH Mānoa’s bachelor of science in nursing program, without leaving their home campus. The award is named in honor of the long-time University of Hawaiʻi administrator and secretary to the Board of Regents, Willard Wilson, who set a standard for exemplary service to the university during his 40-year career.
