Achieving the Dream has some very exciting incentives for the 2011-2012 year and beyond, as well as activities that the whole campus can benefit from. Thanks to the hard work of Shawn Flood, the Hawai‘i Community College Achieving the Dream committee now has a link on the home page of Hawai‘i Community College. When you follow the link (http://hawaii.hawaii.edu/atd/) you will be brought to a page that will provide as much data as we have to date dealing with student success.
Achieving the Dream coordinators from across the Community College System are already working on the 3rd Annual Hawai‘i Strategic Institute (HSI) that will take place in April 2012. We are in negotiations as to where it will be hosted, but for now, it looks like Honolulu Community College. Last Spring 2011 Hawai‘i Community College sent nearly 40 people to the Institute (the most of any college including those on O‘ahu) and judging by the post Institute surveys, faculty and staff learned a lot and felt the 2 day event was worth their time. If you think you would like to do a presentation or host a forum at the HSI which deals with student success we will be requesting submissions soon.
