UH Maui College Strategic Planning and Assessment

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 have emerged into planning priorities for the next year. In addition to being included in the UH Maui College Strategic Plan, the planning priorities are often included in the annual Program Review report completed by each program. 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.
