The Hawai'i Strategy Institute is a forum for participants from the University of Hawai'i Community Colleges and invited guest speakers to engage in discussions focused on using evidence to change policies, practices, strategies and services to improve student success. 

Achieving the Dream sponsored two successful Hawai'i Strategy Institute forums in 2010 and 2011, with a wide range of topics from understanding the millennial generation to learning how to use data to drive decision-making.

The 2012 Achieving the Dream Hawai'i Strategy Institute takes place on April 20-21. Presenters from Hawai'i and the U.S. mainland offer a snapshot of the trends and innovations in retention, assessment, learning communities and other programs geared to help students succeed in college.
