Education has the power to change lives.

Let’s keep that in mind as 2015 begins. Whether you are on our campus as a student, faculty member, staff member, or administrator, we should work together to make this campus a place of learning.

To do this, and joining with others in the tradition of creating resolutions to start the new year, I’m sharing my goals for our campus for 2015. I hope that we can build on the successes of 2014, where we saw our enrollment grow by double digit percentages, crafted a worthy Strategic Plan, and enjoyed a fruitful WASC visit. We want to continue to manifest the positive energy from last year, and push forward.

The number one objective is to enhance our student-centered environment.

I also want to:

  • Increase Student Retention and Graduation Rates
  • Increase Enrollment
  • Increase Programs
  • Increase Resources
  • Increase Campus Community Involvement
  • Increase Morale

Let’s work together to accomplish these goals. I’m open to hearing your thoughts on ways that we can move forward and improve our campus’ initiatives (Email uhwocomm@hawaii.edu).

Happy New Year!
