Student Appreciation Night

Outstanding students from each of the academic programs at UHMC were recognized for their hard work and dedication throughout the year at a special ‘Student Appreciation Night’. John Morton, Vice President of the University of Hawai’i Community College System was in attendance, as well as over a hundred students, family members, faculty and staff. “We believe that when students are recognized for their success it helps motivate them to continue their academic pathway,” said Student Council Member Tasha Kama. “We are always excited when we hear instructors passionately talk about their students and how their students have touched their lives.  I commend all the students who will be graduating next month and am grateful to all the faculty and staff who contributed to Student Appreciation Night.”

ABIT Student Project Showcase Nov. 20th

Kahului, HI — November 17, 2014 — Students with entrepreneurial aspirations in UH Maui College’s Applied Business & Information Technology (ABIT) program invite the public for a sneak peak of their beta businesses next Thursday, November 20th during two sessions: 10:30AM – 12:00PM and 5:30PM – 7:00PM in the campus’ Kaʻaʻike building. What kinds of small businesses might be arriving in Maui County soon? Student plans range from an exotic, hand-made jewelry company using local sources, to a cyber-security consultancy, a company distributing ‘culturally inspired Hāna-made products’, a raw food restaurant, and a centrally located furniture refinisher/paint warehouse. “This is an important next step for our students. They’re taking their business idea from a vision to a professional presentation, and are looking forward to feedback from the community to hone their plan and launch a successful enterprise,” said ABIT program coordinator Dr. Debasis Bhattacharya. “The program’s goal is to incubate the next generation of small businesses that will help our local economy thrive.” Misty-Rayne Fontanilla, an ABIT student in her final year, will be presenting Makana ʻo Hāna, which translates in English as a “gift of Hāna”. Makana ʻo Hāna will provide its malihini (guests/visitors) with the opportunity to “take a piece of Hāna home” with them by offering “culturally inspired, Hāna-made products” handcrafted by the locals themselves. “The ABIT program has helped me to take a business idea and turn it into a working reality,” said Fontanilla. “A Hawaiian proverb states, “ʻAʻohe pau ka ʻike i ka hālau hoʻokahi”, which can be understood as “one does not learn from one source alone”. With the help of mentors and guides, I’m learning step-by-step how to start a successful business.” Another student, Jeremy Bac, is developing

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.
