Descriptive Summary - Support of Reaffirmation of Accreditation Submitted by: Windward Community College

Descriptive Summary:
The General Education Foundation requirements of the AA degree include two courses that meet the Global & Multicultural Perspectives requirement. Students choose to take two of the following three courses to fulfill this requirement: World Civilization 1 (HIST 151; Ref. 2A-204), World Civilization 2 (HIST 152; Ref. 2A-205), World Religions (REL 150; Ref. 2A-206). Historical sensitivity and cultural diversity are inherent in these courses, and are a part of their stated SLOs.

The Diversification requirement provides courses on a variety of subjects that foster historical and aesthetic sensitivity, cultural awareness, and an appreciation of ethical principles. Courses that satisfy the Arts, Humanities, and Literature Diversification requirement include an Introduction to Philosophy: Morals and Society (PHIL 101; Ref. 2A-207), Religion and the Meaning of Existence (REL 151; Ref. 2A-208), Understanding Indian Religions (REL 202; Ref. 2A-209), Understanding Buddhism (REL 207; Ref. 2A-210), etc. These courses examine social and individual values, obligations, and responsibilities.

There are also numerous Art, Music, and Drama courses that develop aesthetic sensitivity and promote Global and Cultural Awareness. Advanced English Literature classes (ENG 271 and 272; Ref. 2A-211; Ref. 2A-212), various history courses (e.g. History of Hawai‘i – HIST 224 [Ref. 2A-213], Civilizations of Asia I – HIST 241 [Ref. 2A-214], Civilizations of Asia II – HIST 242 [Ref. 2A-215], Introduction to American History I – HIST 281 [Ref. 2A-216], American History II – HIST 282 [Ref. 2A-217]), as well as Hawai‘i Center of the Pacific (HWST 107; Ref. 2A-218), and Introduction to Asian Philosophy: Asian Traditions (PHIL 102; Ref. 2A-219) to name a few.

Courses in Political Science, Sociology, and Geography highlight civic, political, and social responsibilities and satisfy the Social Science diversification requirement. Some examples are: Introduction to American Government (POLS 130; Ref. 2A-220) which studies the American political system; Introduction to Social Problems (SOC 218; Ref. 2A-221) which studies social change processes; and Geography and Contemporary Society (GEOG 151; Ref. 2A-222) which examines current problems of developed and underdeveloped countries.

Moreover, as mentioned above, the College offers Service-Learning (Ref. 2A-223) as an option for students. Working with their instructor, students who opt for a Service-Learning component in a specified course will learn and develop academic skills by applying what they have learned through participation at an elementary, intermediate, or secondary school or at an approved community site such as the Hawai‘i State Hospital. Students can participate with community groups such as Hawai‘i Youth at Risk, Big Brothers and Sisters, Junior Achievement, Teen Reading, and Bristol Hospice.

Service-Learning is reciprocal in nature and is integrated into designated courses. It enhances the academic curriculum of the students and is directed towards fostering civic responsibility in the student. In the Spring 2012 Schedule of Classes (Ref. 2A-223), 45 classes were listed as providing the Service-Learning option. Some of these classes satisfy the General Education requirements for the AA degree.

In addition to a wide variety of academic courses that have been designed to develop aesthetic sensitivity, the College provides art gallery exhibitions at Gallery `Iolani, music concerts and theatre productions at Palikū Theatre, and the Common Book program. Gallery `Iolani provides art exhibits featuring local and international artists (Ref. 2A-224), as well as students and faculty artworks. Palikū Theatre provides professional, affordable, and captivating arts experiences and training for community audiences and performers alike (Ref. 2A-225). The Common Book program seeks to have everyone at the College reading and discussing the same book (Ref. 2A-226). Organized events such as movies, lectures, and discussions connect to themes in the book.

The Associated Students of the University of Hawai‘i at Windward CC Community College (ASUH-WCC; Ref. 2A-227) is the official student government association and provides for student input in institutional policymaking. The association is the students’ political voice and affords students the opportunity to learn leadership skills, planning and program implementation skills, and interpersonal skills. ASUH-WCC meets twice a week (Executive and Senate) to gather information about any issues or concerns that may arise for students in their college experience and to help improve the campus for current and future students alike. This activity develops students’ civic, political, and social responsibilities.

Finally, the Windward CC faculty are role models and mentors who improve student awareness of ethical practices. The learning environment, regardless of location, is an effective arena for broadening civility, tolerance, and interpersonal communication.
