In the spirit of Kauhale, Interim Chancellor Noreen Yamane is hosting informal talk story sessions, called Wala’au (to talk informally) with various programs, units and initiatives of our College. These Wala’au (“w” pronounced with a soft “v) sessions are designed to engender and sustain meaningful communication within our College, insuring that good work and significant outcomes become clarified and known to the greater Kauhale and celebrated for its contributions to the Excellence we promote.

On November 16, 2010, Chancellor Yamane hosted Wala’au, Talk Story Session for HawCC Remedial Development Initiatives. Here the various initiatives shared their approaches to remedial development, their best practices, challenges and their ideas of maximizing a collaborative approach toward remedial development. Those gathered will gather again to wala’au on how best to pool resources for remedial initiatives.
