Development Academy of the Philippines delegation

Development Academy of the Philippines delegation

We are hosting the presidents of 15 state colleges and universities in the Philippines this week. They are taking an Executive Course in Education Management and Leadership and are learning from the experiences of foreign universities, including the University of Hawaiʻi.

The Development Academy of the Philippines says it selected UH as one of the learning sites because of the strength of our system approach and the key strengths of the university.

The educational leaders are especially interested in our contribution to Hawaiʻi’s economy and research, how we improved education delivery and access across the state and our marine and agriculture programs and community college innovation. They are also interested in the East-West Center and the Philippine Consulate.

The delegation will visit the UH System, UH Mānoa, UH West Oʻahu, Windward Community College, Kapiʻolani Community College and much more over the next week.
