UHCC embraces its responsibilities to the indigenous people of Hawai'i by ensuring that Native Hawaiians not only have access to higher education but also have every opportunity to achieve success. To meet the strategic goal "to improve Native Hawaiian Educational Attainment," UHCC has adopted a comprehensive approach. This effort involves increasing the number of Native Hawaiian students in college but also improving retention by helping students successfully progress through remedial and developmental courses and college-level math and English, which have been identified as roadblocks to success.

Research and studies have shown that financial aid in the form of work-study, scholarships, grants (merit or need) or low-interest student loans, increases the likelihood that students will remain in college. Accordingly UHCC has adopted policies and practices to increase financial aid to students and to ensure that students take full advantage of financial aid opportunities that are available.

A significant component of our efforts at Native Hawaiian student success is addressed through "Achieving the Dream," a national effort to improve student success in community colleges. Grants through Title III of the federal Higher Education Act also help to increase retention and persistence rates of Native Hawaiian students. With multi-year million dollar grants in hand, community colleges are able to supplement existing services and programs to better serve Native Hawaiians, and in some cases, create new programs that will increase retention, persistence and graduation rates.

To address Native Hawaiian educational attainment, UHCC has identified these specific strategic outcomes by 2015:

  • Increase Native Hawaiian enrollment by 3% per year (5,861 students by 2015), particularly in regions that are underserved.
  • Promote low-income Native Hawaiian student success and graduation by increasing the financial aid participation rate to 38% of eligible students (2,095 students), the total amount of financial aid awarded to $14,376,835, and the number of aid recipients making satisfactory progress by 2015.
  • Increase the number and percent (to 80%) of Native Hawaiian students who, if assigned to a developmental intervention, successfully complete that sequence and move on to degree applicable instructions by 2015.
  • Increase by 6% to 9% per year (803 students by 2015) the number of Native Hawaiian students who successfully progress and graduate, or transfer to baccalaureate institutions, while maintaining the percentage of transfers who achieve a first year GPA of 2.0 or higher at the transfer institution.
