2006-07 Plan for Institutional Advancement

July 27, 2006



Over the past five years, Maui Community College has changed the face of its campus with ambitious construction of new facilities all equipped with the latest in technology.These include a culinary arts center, video and TV production studio, recording studio, computer labs, and distance learning and language lab classrooms and offices.The modern facilities help to enhance student learning, create a better teaching environment, and improve the public perception of the college.



Currently, Maui Community College faculty, staff, and administration are exploring a new role for the institution:a facilitator for making the island of Maui a model of sustainability.Through partnerships with the public and private sector, MCC has created the Sustainable Living Institute of Maui, developed courses for degree programs in Applied Ecosystem Sustainability, and engaged more students in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math.MCC also has created initiatives to reduce expenses on campus via an energy-monitoring system and is exploring the application of alternative energy solutions.



The next step in this new vision is to become a sustainable institution where each department can develop its potential for self-sufficiency, moving away from dependency on State and tuition-based funding.Each program has unmet needs, and assisting the units in identifying and securing funding sources is the responsibility of the Office of Institutional Advancement with help from the Horizons Committee of the Chancellorís Advisory Council and others.



Sustainability for the island of Maui includes environmental, socio-economic, and cultural factors.The community is looking at such things as balanced ecosystems

(water, fuel, food sources), economic development, health care, long-term care, hospitality industry and outreach education centers as key areas in which to become increasingly sustainable.Other perspective sustainable economic development vectors may include technological and scientific activities at the Maui Research and Technology Park and at the top of Haleakala.Higher education in Maui County might also be viewed as a significant contributor to sustainable economic development.



In order for Maui Community College to become a facilitator for Maui Countyís sustainability, the institution may align itself with current community directions. In collaboration with private and public leadership, MCC must provide educational excellence in the areas of health, visitor industry, science and technology, business, and social infrastructure.As Maui Communitiy College and the County of Maui becomes the model of sustainability, hopefully other entities will follow the lead.



The University of Hawai`i Centennial Campaign


The Centennial Campaign offers a context within which to pursue educational excellence in Maui County. The campaign, begun in 2002 and scheduled to be completed in 2009, provides the means for system wide support of the University of Hawai`i.The priorities of the Centennial Campaign include the following:


  • Enhancing academic excellence
  • Strengthening undergraduate education
  • Promoting Hawaiiís economy
  • Maximizing our Mid-Pacific setting
  • Fostering the Universityís relationship with its communities



MCC Program Needs




All Maui Community College department chairs and program directors will describe in detail their needs for sustained excellence.According to a report of Program Health Indicators 2005-06, the needs are described as follows:

Looking at Maui Community Collegeís vision, program needs, and role in the Maui community, the following priorities emerge:

  2. Allied Health and Nursing Center
  3. Margin of Excellence (for innovation or improvement of programs)
  4. Baccalaureate Development (e.g. Allied Health)

  7. Arts Building


These priorities also dovetail with the goals of the Centennial Campaign.





The development goal for 2006-07 is $2 million.Assuming the Leisí gift counted in FY 2006, this represents a 35% raise over last yearís total contributions credited to Maui Community College.Strategic goals include the following:


  • Achieve 100% giving by the Chancellorís Advisory Committee
  • Achieve 100% participation by the CAC in some fundraising activity
  • Involve each Vice-Chancellor in fundraising
