Introduction

History and Organization of the Institution

Kauai Community College (KCC) is one of seven community colleges in the University of Hawaii System. It is a comprehensive community college which provides access to two-year associate-level terminal and transfer degrees, as well as certificate and non-credit training programs that enable the college to respond flexibly and quickly to changing workforce needs. Shorter term certificates as well as non-credit training enable the college to respond flexibly and quickly to the changing needs of the workforce.

Established in 1928 as a vocational school, it was part of the state Department of Education. In 1965, it became a comprehensive community college and was transferred to the University of Hawaii System as part of the UH Community College System. It is the only public institution of higher education serving the county of Kauai, which includes the islands of Kauai and Niihau.

The college awards the following degrees and certificates:

Associate of Arts (AA) in Liberal Arts

Associate of Science (AS)

Nursing

Early Childhood Education

Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in

Accounting

Office Administration and Technology

Visitor Industry--Culinary Arts and Hospitality Services

Autobody Repair and Painting

Automotive Mechanics Technology

Electronics Technology

Certificate of Achievement (CA) in

Nursing

Early Childhood Education

Accounting

Office Administration and Technology

Visitor Industry--Culinary Arts and Hospitality Services

Autobody Repair and Painting

Automotive Mechanics Technology

Electronics Technology

Facilities Engineering

Certificates of Completion and Competence are also awarded in most of the above areas and an Academic Subject Certificate in Hawaiian Studies is available to complement the AA degree. The Certificate of Competence has been the most active area of curriculum development in the past five years. Certificates in Medical Office Receptionist, Hawaiian Botany, Polynesian Voyaging, Auto Body Repair and Painting, Electronics, Cashiering, and Culinary Arts have been added.

Currently, degrees previously offered in Carpentry and Electrical Installation have been stopped out and the division is reviewing the programs.

In 1996, Kauai Community College took on the responsibilities of a University Center, in response to the growing need for baccalaureate and graduate level education in the community. The University of Hawaii System established three such centers, one on Kauai, one on Maui and one in West Hawaii. As a University Center, the college can broaden the educational opportunities of island-bound residents by supporting baccalaureate and graduate programs from sister campuses. Distance learning technology, including two-way video and audio and online classes, greatly extends the reach of higher education for the island. The college provides access to this technology and also provides facilities and academic support for on-site faculty from UH Mnoa and Kapiolani Community College and visiting faculty from other campuses as needed. Ascertaining and assessing community needs is among the most important responsibilities of the University Center.

The college is presently organized into four units, headed by a dean or director, who reports to the chancellor. Instruction, led by the Dean of Instruction, is made up of six divisions:

Language Arts and Humanities

Science and Math

Health Education

Business Education

Trades and Technology

Academic Support and University Center

Student Services is led by the Dean of Student Services and includes

Admission and Records

Academic Advising

Financial Aid

Special Student Services

The Office of Continuing Education and Training, headed by a director, is responsible for non-credit, customized training and the operation of the Performing Arts Center. Administration and facilities are coordinated by the Director for Administrative Services. Institutional Research also reports directly to the chancellor.

The chancellor reports to both the President of the University of Hawaii System and the Vice President for Community Colleges. The chancellor is a member of both the Council of Chancellors and the Council of Community College Chancellors.
