DRAFT PROPOSAL

Process to Determine Mission-Vision Statement

For consideration by Executive Committee and then Full Senate at March 24th meeting:

 

 

Whereas, Chancellor Freitas has asked the college to begin a dialogue to review the current mission statement, and

 

Whereas, the Hawaii CC administrators opened this dialogue at an administrative retreat on January 30-31 by producing a draft mission and vision statement, and

 

Whereas, faculty, staff and students responded at the March 3 Learning Day by creating a revision of the initial draft statement, and

 

Whereas, the opportunity exists to align a new mission statement with the current efforts to build two new campuses and establish a cycle of continuing improvement through a process of program review,

 

Therefore, be it resolved that the Academic Senate establishes an ad hoc committee to complete editorial work on the proposed mission statement, vision statement and points of clarification (referred to as “imperatives” in the present draft),

 

Be it further resolved that the Ad Hoc Committee shall be chaired by the Senate Chair and composed of an editorial group and an advisory group,

 

Be it further resolved, to facilitate the process of revision and to complete this project by the end of the current semester, the Editorial Group shall consists of no more than four members, including the ad hoc chair,

 

Be it further resolved, to maintain the original intent of the statements developed at the March 3 Learning Day, the Advisory Group shall consist of representatives from the March 3 working groups;

 

Be it further resolved, the advisory group shall review the results of the Learning Day draft, receive further input, make revisions if needed, and submit a draft to the Editorial Group by April 7;

 

Be it further resolved, the editorial group is charged to maintain the intent of the draft statement while at the same time revising for effective style and presentation; the Editorial Group shall complete its work and submit its proposed statement to the Senate Executive Committee, College Council Chair, and the Student Body President, by April 17,

 

Be it further resolved, the Executive Committee will bring the statement to the Senate for a vote of confirmation at its April 28th meeting; the College Council and Student Government shall determine their own method for processing the proposed statements;    

 

Be it further resolved that if the senate confirms the statement, it will be forwarded to the Chancellor for his consideration,

 

Be it further resolved that if adopted by the Chancellor and his administrative team, and the BOR if necessary, the statement will be reviewed at the end of current cycle of program reviews, whether that be three, four or five years, to initiate a regular cycle of evaluation, planning, and improvement for the mission statement.
