Committee on Institutional Educational Objectives

Since late April, 2009, the OVCAA has convened the committee on Institutional Educational Objectives. The group has been meeting to formalize the undergraduate principles of the baccalaureate at UH Manoa. In several meetings, the committee has reviewed the strategic academic documents of Manoa (e.g., the Institutional Proposal) and the committee has examined the AACU's Essential Learning Outcomes as well as outcomes from other institutions such as IUPUI. At its most recent meeting (5/12/09), the committee worked in small groups to discuss and propose possible institutional educational objectives. These proposals will continue to be sharpened and then they will be submitted to the appropriate Senate committee for review. The objectives should be in place by Fall 09. The Assessment Office is taking the lead on this discussion as of 5/12/09.
