On February 28 – March 2, 2012, HawCC attended the Achieving the Dream (AtD) Annual Conference in Dallas, Texas.
Dr. Taupōuri Tangarō represented HawCC and addressed the theme – Tapping into the Culture of Underserved Populations to Improve Student Success.
What HawCC is doing to help student success was shown to an audience that was about 1400 people, representing 150 community colleges from 30 states and the District of Columbia.
The video bellow is a good explanation as to why AtD exists and why the UHCC system supports AtD. Attendees in the audience said that the HawCC presentation was the best most powerful presentation of the conference. Please take some time and watch the video.
We have 16 slots left to go to the Hawai`i Strategic Institute April 20/21 being held at Honolulu CC. If you have never gone to a HSI you are encouraged to attend and see what Achieving the Dream is doing in Hawai`i.
