2013 Hawaii Community College Annual Fact Book

< Back to Hawaii CC Fact Book



The HawCC fact book was developed to provide an additional means for faculty and staff to find institutional data in support of grants, scholarships, assessment, program review, accreditation, or other reporting needs.

The intention of the HawCC Institutional Research Office is to update the fact book as time and resources will allow during the Summer break every year, so that Faculty and Staff can utilize the site for their reporting needs during the course of the upcoming academic year. The fact book will continue to be built out to accommodate the needs of the college.
