The Council has recommended that we adopt a No Pet Policy, which states no pets except service animals are allowed on campus. This policy was unanimously recommended on May 3, 2013.
The Council has approved the Assessment Committee as a permanent standing committee on May 3, 2013. The purpose of the Assessment Committee is to advance student learning through activities, experiences and results discovered through the assessment process.
For more information on the Assessment Committee, please see page 16 of the Committee Handbook at http://www.hawaii.hawaii.edu/faculty-staff/docs/committee_handbook.pdf .
