Mānoa Distance Learning Committee

The Mānoa Distance Learning Committee (MDLC) advises the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs on policies and procedures for the review and delivery of Mānoa courses and/or programs to off-campus sites or delivered via distance modalities. The mission of MDLC is to promote quality and access to students choosing the venue of distance learning for part or all of their academic pursuits.

The MDLC works collaboratively to recommend guidelines, plans, and policies to enhance the development, delivery, management, and evaluation of distance learning courses and programs offered by the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The MDLC reviews and recommends approval of proposals for the distance delivery of Mānoa programs, based on approved WASC guidelines (substantive change review for distance and off-campus programs).
