50 Years of Service:

Innovation Fund

Leeward Community College is committed to fostering innovation and supporting instructional improvement in the classroom to support student success. The college has set aside $60,000 to provide support to faculty and staff members to try new strategies, implement new tools, and learn new methodologies in support of the success of our students. We have awarded a little over half of the funds with the initial application deadline in September, and there are still available funds.

Pathways and STAR GPS news

Last week I held a Talk Story session on Pathways, a framework that the UHCC system is implementing. This work is being coordinated by the Student Success Council, a UHCC system group with representation from all of the community colleges. I have attached two presentations on the Student Success Council and the Pathways project. Pathways (viewing the student's movement through our college as a journey) and Guided Pathways (providing students with structure within the program) are two important initiatives that will guide how we advise and support our students.
