University of Hawaii Maui College Executive Summary 2013-14

Instruction For academic year 2013-14, the Career and Technical Education (CTE) and the Liberal Arts programs submitted a total of 24 instructional and three developmental program reviews. Each CTE review included a special emphasis on an overall assessment of their outcomes at both the course and program levels. As a result of this program review process, during the 2013-14 academic year, programs continue to make progress mapping their courses to the Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) of their program, and each program continues to seek validation and support of their PLOs from their respective advisory committees. Additionally, programs have begun mapping college-wide student learning outcomes (CASLOs) into their course and program analysis, and will continue to align each to Institutional Learning Outcomes that have been developed through a campus-wide process led by our Strategic Planning Committee. For academic year 2013-14, special emphasis was placed on Information Literacy. Health call indicators continued to improve during the 2013-14 period.  Eight programs were classed as healthy (five more than last year), 11 were ranked as cautionary (two less than last year), and no programs received an overall unhealthy rating (down two from the previous year). The college met four of the six Perkins indicators for 2013-14, falling short in 1P1 (Technical Skills Attainment), and 4P1 (Student Placement). All seven of the Community Colleges failed to meet the 4P1 indicator, therefore it will received priority Perkins funding for the 2015-16 proposal year. Department Chairs, Program Coordinators, Counselors, and Career Link have been made aware of these deficiencies and have been challenged to improve these during the 2015-2016 academic year, and to address them in their next program reviews. Support Programs UH Maui College Academic Support programs including the four outreach

New Community Health Short-Term Certificates

Prospective students interested in community health can take advantage of two new short-term certificate programs launching this fall at the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College. The certificates can be earned in one or two semesters, with class schedules designed for participants already balancing work and family obligations. The new Community Health Worker/Health Navigator 1 Certificate of Competence requires 15 credits, and will allow participants to finish in less than a year. New distance learning options will be also be available for Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Hāna, and Lāhainā. Community health workers (CHWs) in Maui County hold job titles that include outreach specialist, wellness navigator, program assistant, and health aide. They serve as bridges between the community and healthcare and social services providers, helping to ensure services are accessible and culturally appropriate. CHWs often provide care coordination and supportive counseling. “This work is about trust and compassion,” said Haunani Kamakana, a navigator at Molokaʻi General Hospital. They also focus on prevention, leading outreach and education efforts and supporting individuals, families, and communities in making healthy changes. Dr. Joe Humphry, Medical Director of the Lānaʻi Community Health Center, notes that “CHWs connect people to the resources they need to stay healthy, detect problems early on and improve management of chronic conditions. They are essential members of our health care team.” The CHW certificate was developed with input from local healthcare, public health, and social service employers, as well as national and state efforts like Hawaiʻi’s Healthcare Innovation Plan, and workforce studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Project partners include Lānaʻi Community Health Center and Na Puʻuwai. Leadership and key staff from Lānaʻi Community Health Center, Na Puʻuwai, Hui No Ke Ola Pono, Mālama I

Guitar Virtuosos Return for Free Concert at UHMC

Following the success of last year’s free concert which packed the house, once again guitar virtuosos will perform at UH Maui College to shine a light on opportunities to study music and inspire the next generation of musicians. The concert is scheduled to take place Friday, July 10th at 3:00 PM in the ʻIke Leʻa auditorium, and will feature guitarists Ian O’Sullivan, Christopher Mallett, and Aaron Cardenas. The program will include a variety of music for solo and duet, with a mix of classical guitar and ukulele pieces. A reception with pupus and refreshments will follow at 4:00 PM for all attendees. Ian O’Sullivan, a Kamehameha graduate and UH alumni who became the first guitarist from Hawaiʻi to earn a Masters in Guitar from Yale University, performed last July and is excited to return. “As a performer, I always feel good when the acoustics are good. It’s nice to share music with another part of the University of Hawaiʻi and especially with the community. I look forward to talking to students after the concert.” OʻSullivan is currently a lecturer in classical guitar at UH Mānoa, and was a finalist in the 2014 Na Hōkū Hanohano awards for his first CD, Born and Raised. Christopher Mallett has been awarded several prizes including the Eliot Fisk Prize for “outstanding guitarist” from Yale University, the Alumni Ventures Grant from Yale University, and as part of the Oberlin Guitar Duo received top Prize in the International Guitar Chamber Competition in Brownsville Texas. He has also been featured in Classical Guitar Magazine, Soundboard and the American Suzuki Journal. Aaron Cardenas is a current UH Mānoa student.
