Strategic Planning

The process to develop an effective plan involves a partnership among students, faculty, and administrators from across the system to ensure that critical issues were identified, and that a mutual commitment to the accomplishment of shared goals and priorities is established. The community colleges Strategic Planning Council (SPC) is the primary body for assuring system-wide participation in the UHCC strategic planning process. The membership of the SPC consists of the Chancellor, Faculty Senate Chair, and student government chair from each campus, and the Vice President and Associate Vice Presidents for the Community Colleges. 

The council meets periodically to apprise members of internal operational issues and possible external community issues that may impact the community colleges, as well as assess the progress of meeting the system goals and priorities as identified in the strategic plan.

UHCC strategic planning is a never-ending process of checks and balances. In determining the best strategies that will help our colleges advance forward, we rely on data, research and new perspectives drawn from the University community and the public-at-large. Then, through a unified and coherent system review of our current strategic and academic plans, this information is shared with all stakeholders to reassess and evaluate our progress in meeting current goals and objectives and/or establishing new ones. This process allows for greater input from a broader array of people, more transparency and relevancy of data and, of course, timely communication and accountability.

As a result of this collaborative and comprehensive process, the UHCC Strategic Plan was established within the guidelines of the UH Board of Regents' policy on academic planning and the UHCC policy 4.101 on strategic planning, while upholding our UHCC mission and integrating the goals identified by the University of Hawai'i System Strategic Plan.

This plan, coupled with campus academic development plans, creates a solid framework from which we can focus our limited resources on the most important actions and priorities to meet our goals.
This website provides you with information on the strategic planning process, the progress being made to meeting our goals, and access to supporting resources and documentation.
