The C3T Hawaii Grant comprises four major components.
The grant is deploying a common adult basic education program called iCan, to accelerate the academic and training progress of low-skilled and other workers. This program will integrate and contextualize adult basic education into both existing and new programs in the fields of Health Care, Energy and Agriculture.
The grant will study the impact of student coaching on improving student retention, achievement rates (Satisfactory Academic Progress) and completion. Working in concert with ongoing UHCC initiatives including the Hawaii Graduation Initiative and Achieving the Dream, the University of Hawaii Community Colleges are working as a team to drive student outcomes to meet the national completion agenda.
The grant utilizes industry based Policy Planning Work Groups (PPWGs) (Add link for the PPWG) to build programs that meet industry needs. The PPWG will provide insight into Hawaii's dynamic employment market, review curriculum, assists with the construction of a new predictive analytic model (add link for predictive modeling), and provide leads for internships and other work experience and/ or employment opportunities.
Working with the University of Hawaii Information Technology Services, the grant will develop and deploy online technology-enabled learning solutions to reach all communities within the State of Hawaii.
