Manoa’s Accreditation Presentation Overview

The 2001 WASC Handbook outlines a three-stage review process which begins with the development of an Institutional Proposal, moves to a Capacity and Preparatory Review, and concludes with an Educational Effectiveness Review. Following an extensive self-review process conducted during the 2005-2006 academic year, Mānoa’s students, staff, faculty and administrators formed a consensus agreement that our campus needed a better sense of community around a set of core values and educational objectives that defined the Mānoa Experience. Our Institutional Proposal, submitted in 2006, offers an interrelated set of thematic initiatives that guides us through our reaccreditation process, including the Capacity and Preparatory Review, the Educational Effectiveness Review, and attendant visits. These are:

  • Theme 1: Building a Mānoa Community in Support of Student Success
    • Objectives:
      • Foster the development of a Mānoa identity
      • Enable and ensure student learning success
  • Theme 2: Campus Renewal to Support the Mānoa Experience
    • Objectives:
      • Construct a more responsive approach to Campus Master Planning and facilities management that fosters community engagement and student learning
      • Expand and renovate student and faculty housing and improve areas for student interactions
  • Theme 3: Reform Campus Governance to Promote Communication and Student Success
    • Objectives:
      • Forge meaningful and long-term relationships among stakeholders
      • Foster student success through enhanced student/faculty engagement

The Capacity and Preparatory Review process culminated in a site visit in December 2009, by an external team of reviewers.  The reaccreditation process concluded with the submission of the Educational Effectiveness Review self-study and a final site visit in March 2011.
