Alternate Energy

Conducting preliminary discussions with pv company and Hawaii powerlight.David is leading that effort.We are also soliciting University expertise in examining what project would look like if it materializes.



Windmill ready to ship.Engineer ready to come here.Need project director.If we do it on the campus, the entitlement (permitting process) will be fairly rigorous so we are being asked to explore if we may place it at the hi-tech center.MauiCC may not benefit; MHPCC and University of Hawaii may benefit.Clyde informed Dave Lassner of the possibility.†† We are checking to see if there is anyone within the University who could serve as a project manager.


Outreach: polycomm, staff, travel

Senator Hee expressed an interest in outfitting Hana with a Polycomm system.Require personnel for other outreach sites.Positions distributed among Hana, Lanai, Molokai, Kihei, West Maui.ee Hee


Representative Waters would like to have bullets from us as soon as possible.He is going to amend the bill to include additional items for a hearing to be held on February 9.†† The bill must go through subject matter committee to money committee which are the House Finance Committee and Senate Ways and Means Committee.


Hawaiian Positions

Senator Hee has agreed to support two Hawaiian faculty positions; one position in Hawaiian Language and one in Hawaiian Studies.He has added another position for a total of three positions.


Positions would be listed in one ad and would refer people to the MCC website.Senator is requiring that we indicate ďpending availability of fundsĒ in the ad and be prepared to start this Fall semester.We will know in May whether or not we will receive the funds.We should plan on adding classes for the two Native Hawaiian positions and the Workforce Development positions.


Academic Senate Budget Committee

Helpful to let our representatives and senators know our story.Need to develop informational sheet.

4.                                              Program Review Summary

A draft list of priorities was distributed which lists all of the positions that might materialize in a sequential format [supplemental, program review, legislative initiative & support, governorís initiative (system wide initiative), immediate need, frozen positions, conversion of selected full time lecturer positions to full time temporary positions, other priorities].


Construction Academy (Governorís Initiative)

Diane will follow up on specifics on where the seven positions of the construction academy would go.We should also get details on the Nursing positions.


Frozen Positions

Frozen positions are positions that were frozen to make loan repayment.Monies will be restored next year to fill the positions. Ellen Haraís Clerk-Typist and the HSS Clerk-Typist positions should be added to frozen list.†† July 1 is targeted as refill date.


In funding positions we need to analyze the status of our tuition fees special funds.

We are currently projecting a shortage of $70,000 for spring.flo estimates that lectureship funds is underspent by $60,000, which would leave us $10,000 short.


Concern was expressed for the need for additional clerical support with the addition of faculty positions.It was suggested that we look at student help and paraprofessional kinds of positions.It was also noted that we need classified, professional positions as well.


flo will work with department chairs to look at full time lecturer positions to convert to full time temporary positions where enrollments can justify.
