In academic year 2017-2018, UH Mānoa’s General Education program underwent its first comprehensive program review. A Steering Committee was formed to conduct a thorough self-study (or internal review), and issued a report and recommendations in May 2018. That report can be downloaded here:

The OVCAA also commissioned an External Review of the program in the spring of 2018, conducted by a team of professionals from three mainland universities as well as the Association of American Colleges and Universities. The final report and recommendations submitted by the external review team, the General Education Committee’s response to the internal and external reviews, and the VCAA’s response to the GEC’s memo, are posted on the VCAA’s website.
