Office of Planning, Policy & Assessment

Welcome. The Office of Planning, Policy & Assessment was established in the Fall of 2007. Our mission is to serve as the information liaison between the campus and the University of Hawai‘i Community College System (UHCC). We provide the college with accurate data reports, assist in the planning and assessment process, and assist with the development, maintenance and publication of campus policies.

MISSION: The Office of Planning, Policy, and Assessment supports the college mission and promotes institutional effectiveness by developing, communicating, and maintaining an infrastructure for ongoing planning, policy-making, assessment, evaluation, and grant/contract acquisition and coordination.

OPPA has four goals:

  • Enhance communication with the campus in all areas of OPPA responsibility
  • Create a culture of inquiry, action, and improvement at the college 
  • Facilitate program review, evaluation, and planning process
  • Embed assessment throughout institution at all levels
