Mission Strategic Plan
  • The University of Hawaii at Manoa is a
    globally-connected Hawaiian place of learning
    unlike any in the world. Ours is an academy of
    tremendous diversity, open to world cultures and
    scientific advancement. We occupy a prestigious
    place among the international community of
    research universities. Manoa is a place of
    inspiration, where artists, athletes, scientists
    and scholars gather and interact with intensity.
  • …. Together, we will become a model of
    innovation for the world to emulate, and for the
    people of Hawaii to revere.

UH Manoa Strategic Plan, 2002-2010
  • The Strategic Plan charges us to vigorously
    recruit students from Asia and the Pacific and
    foster regional alumni relations, and to expand
    leadership in international affairs, emphasizing
    Hawaii, Asia, and the Pacific.

UH Manoa Strategic Plan, 2002-2010
Mission WASC Proposal
  • Nearly all of the units at Manoa have developed
    strengths in Hawaiian, Asian, and Pacific
    studies, which has created an international
    reputation for the university.

Strengths and Challenges WASC Institutional
Proposal, 2006
  • …the realities of recent administrative
    reorganization, substantial enrollment growth,
    and simultaneous budget cuts have challenged the
    campus to maintain a focus on this Strategic
    plan. Indicators of where we stand include…a
    continued lack of awareness among all campus
    stakeholders regarding Manoas local, national
    and international identity.

Theme 1 Building a Manoa Community in Support
of Student Success WASC Institutional Proposal,
  • A focus on global awareness and local
  • …. The pluricultural children of Hawaii are
    global citizens, a true pan-ethnic population.
    Hence our pedagogical, social, and cultural
    environments should be infused with a global
    perspective, and with questions and issues of
    global significance. Moreover, engaging and
    acting upon local questions and issues during
    their educational experience at Manoa engenders
    in students a sense of responsibility toward
    future generations.

Values and Responsibilities WASC Institutional
Proposal, 2006
  • Essential to the undergraduate Manoa Experience
    is the acquisition of knowledge and ability. A
    Manoa undergraduate should, by the time of
    graduation, have acquired a set of overarching
    (or core) competencies.
  • Global and multicultural perspectives became
    the first hallmark of these competencies in the
    General Education Review by the Manoa faculty.

Competencies and Skills WASC Institutional
Proposal, 2006
Administration Organizational History
  • Support for international education at UHM had
    always been decentralized.
  • The Office of International Programs and Services
    (OIPS) was organized in the late 1980s and
    operated under the Dean of the School Hawaiian,
    Asian and Pacific Studies (SHAPS), advised by the
    Council for International Studies and Programs.
  • OIPS had no administrative links to the Office of
    International Student Services (ISS, formerly
    International Students Office, ISO) nor to the
    Study Abroad Center (SAC).
  • In 1994, OIPS was reconstituted as the
    System-wide Office of International Affairs (OIA)
    with responsibilities for student recruitment,
    exchange agreements, and visa support under the
    Sr. Vice President for International Affairs,
    advised by the Presidents Committee on
    International Programs.

UHM Report on Best Practices in International
Education, 2003
  • The System administrative re-organization of 2002
    made OIA the Office of International Education
    (OIE), under the Vice President for International
    Education. OIE was moved under the VP for
    Academic Planning and Policy after the Office of
    the VP for International Education was dissolved.
  • In 2003, a Liaison for International Affairs
    was appointed to be the Chancellors
    representative and advisor on the coordination of
    international education, programs, services and
    policies for the campus.
  • The Dean of SHAPS served in dual capacity as Dean
    and Liaison.

UHM Report on Best Practices in International
Education, 2003
  • The previously organized Manoa International
    Education Committee became a Chancellor advisory
    group that worked closely with the appointed
    Liaison on advancing international initiatives
    for the campus.
  • An International Exchange Coordinator was hired
    for UHM in fall 2004 in order to transfer all
    Manoa exchange agreements from the UH System OIE
    to Manoa control.
  • The BOR-approved Chancellors Office
    reorganization in 2005 formerly established
    Manoas own international office, the Office of
    International and Exchange Programs (OIEP),
    headed by an Assistant Vice Chancellor reporting
    to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
  • OIEP brought together the Office of International
    Student Services (ISS), the Study Abroad Center
    (SAC), International Exchange, and National
    Student Exchange.

  • By summer 2005, all Manoa exchange agreements,
    formerly overseen by the UH System OIE Exchange
    Coordinator, were brought under the supervision
    of UHMs own Exchange Coordinator.
  • In February 2006, a 2-person consultant team was
    hired to review UHMs international programs and
  • By fall 2006, UHM officially appointed its
    Interim Assistant Vice Chancellor for
    International and Exchange Programs in place of
    the Liaison for International Affairs. It
    remained, however, the dual role of the Dean of
  • Faculty and Scholar Immigration Services, once
    housed at OIE, will become a part of Manoas
    OIEP, but still provide System-wide services,
    further expanding UHMs international office.

Assistant Vice Chancellor for International and
Exchange Programs
The Assistant Vice Chancellor is the university's
chief international education officer and the
principal advisor to the Chancellor and Vice
Chancellor on all matters pertaining to
international education as they relate to the
university. This office advocates, supports and
facilitates the functions of international
education, and promotes international
opportunities and activities both on campus and
overseas. In consultation with the Manoa
International Education Committee, administrators
and the campus community, this office provides
the international vision for the university,
guides relevant policies, and expands the
universitys international presence and
reputation by networking with communities at home
and around the world. Ned Shultz, Interim
Assistant Vice Chancellor
International Student Services
International Student Services (ISS) provides
assistance to approximately 1,800 international
students who come from more than 90 countries to
study at UH Manoa. The ISS advises students on
regulations affecting their non-immigrant visa
status in the U.S., provides opportunities to
help students adjust to the local and U.S.
cultures by working closely with the
International Student Association, and serves as
the office responsible for meeting international
student federal compliance mandates. Linda
Duckworth, Director
Faculty and Scholar Immigration Services
The Office of Faculty and Scholar Immigration
Services (FSIS) provides UH System-wide
immigration and support services for
international employees and administers the
Exchange Visitor Program for all J-1 categories,
except for UH Manoa students. FSIS serves as a
central resource for advising, assisting, and
disseminating immigration information to
international employees and scholars. It
maintains a central immigration database of
UH-sponsored international faculty, researchers,
professional/technical staff, and scholars, from
which it generates internal and external reports.
FSIS reviews and updates UH immigration policies
and procedures and serves as a liaison between UH
and federal agencies on immigration
matters. Linda Hamada, Coordinator
Study Abroad Center
The Study Abroad Center (SAC) collaborates with
various UH Manoa academic departments to provide
opportunities for students to study, and faculty
members to teach and conduct research, in another
country. SAC programs are offered for a summer
term, a semester, or an academic year. Students
earn UHM credits for course work completed
abroad, which may be used to fulfill certain
education requirements, and which will appear on
transcripts as UHM courses. Faculty members have
opportunities to develop courses and publications
based on their overseas experiences, and those
who lead study abroad programs have a wide range
of responsibilities in their capacity as
in-country resident directors. Sarita Rai,
International Exchange
International Exchange provides an opportunity
for UHM students to study overseas and students
from our overseas partner universities to study
at Manoa. An international exchange may be for
one or two semesters some summer exchange
programs are also available. Participating
students are registered as full-time UHM students
while on exchange, and pay only their normal
tuition. Upon completing the exchange, students
receive transfer credit based on an evaluation of
the transcript provided by the host university.
Darrell Kicker, Coordinator
National Student Exchange
The National Student Exchange provides full-time
undergraduates with the opportunity to study for
a semester or a year at one of 190 colleges and
universities located throughout the Continental
U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin
Islands. Tuition costs for exchange students are
reasonable since participants pay either UH Manoa
tuition or resident tuition at the host school.
Room, board, and transportation costs are
additional. For those who meet the eligibility
requirements (including a minimum cumulative GPA
of 2.5), exchange is an excellent way to explore
different academic, social, and cultural
settings. Sandy Davis, Coordinator
Value Current Trends
  • Global demand for higher education is forecast to
    increase from 97 million in 2000 to 263 million
    in 2025.
  • Higher education capacity is not sufficient in
    those regions that will experience the most
    substantial population growth over the next 20

Tapping the Global Student Market JoAnn
McCarthy, Assistant Provost for International
Education University of Pennsylvania
  • Demand will be fueled by countries with rapidly
    expanding populations and economies such as China
    and India.
  • China and India will account for more than half
    of the global demand for international higher
    education by 2025.
  • Concurrently, Japan, Russia and many Western
    European countries will see a decline in domestic
    demand for higher education.

Tapping the Global Student Market JoAnn
McCarthy, Assistant Provost for International
Education University of Pennsylvania
  • Growing regionalism is causing many students to
    travel to countries within their region to attain
    higher education.
  • Alternative delivery systems and evolving
    technology is innovating the way higher education
    is being provided across borders.

Tapping the Global Student Market JoAnn
McCarthy, Assistant Provost for International
Education University of Pennsylvania
  • The market is becoming increasingly competitive
    with some national governments aggressively
    supporting higher education.
  • Accreditation is going global.
  • Consumers are becoming more informed and
    value-conscious. Brand names are not the only
    viable options anymore. Students may be looking
    for economic alternatives.

Tapping the Global Student Market JoAnn
McCarthy, Assistant Provost for International
Education University of Pennsylvania
Value The Economy
  • Foreign graduate students, particularly those
    who study science or engineering, are a boon to
    the American economy and education system. They
    are critical to the United States technological
    leadership in the world economy…for every 100
    international students who receive science or
    engineering PhDs from American universities, the
    nation gains 62 future patent applications….
    About one-third of Americas engineering
    professors are foreign-born.

New York Times, 2005
  • The US Department of Commerce rates American
    higher education as the countrys fifth largest
  • Foreign students and their dependents contributed
    approximately 13.49 billion to the US economy
    during the 2005-2006 AY.
  • For Hawaii, the net contribution to the State
    economy was 108.4 million.

Office of Service Industries, US Department of
Commerce Economic Impact Statement for Hawaii,
2006 NAFSA Association of International
  • Net contribution from UHM international students
    and their dependents was an estimated 26.17
  • Gross contribution was 50.3 million highest in
    the state.
  • US support for foreign students through UHM was
    46 of gross highest in the state.

NOTE The above figures do not include foreign
visiting scholars, foreign faculty/staff,
exchange students, and international visitors
participating in short-term non-credit programs.

  • UHM Research funding for FY 2005 brought in 7.1
    million from non-US sources.
  • US Agency for International Development (USAID)
    provided an additional 2.8 million in funding
    for UHM projects.
  • Federal grants for scholarships, faculty and
    curriculum development in Asian and Pacific
    Studies bring in more money to the State of
    Hawaii. For example, Title VI National Resource
    Centers bring in nearly 6 million over a four
    year cycle.

UHM Office of Research Relations
  • The excellence of UHM programs bring in many
    private sources of funding, such as the 1
    million from The Korea Foundation to the Center
    for Korean studies
  • the 1 million from the Urasenke Foundation to
    the Center for Japanese Studies
  • the Freeman Foundation fully-funded 2006 summer
    study tour tracing the route of King Kalakauas
    journey throughout Asia
  • and many other private donations…

Value Careers/Workforce
  • Of the over 1000 Americans surveyed, 90 of
    Americans believe it is important to ensure that
    future generations have the skills and knowledge
    needed for a more interconnected world.
  • 92 agree that knowledge of foreign languages
    enhances job competitiveness for future
  • 77 value educational experiences abroad.
  • 86 value the opportunity for their children to
    attend colleges where they will interact with
    students from across the globe.
  • 94 understands that part of preparing for a more
    global society is learning about cultures from
    around the world.

NAFSA Association of International Educators
Survey, 2005
  • …more governments see the rapid expansion of
    higher education as a key element in their
    transition from developing to developed
  • …our nations future hinges significantly on the
    international competence of our citizens and
    that, in this day and age, to be fully educated
    is to be educated internationally.
  • The challenges of the new millennium are
    unquestionably global in nature. This reality
    imposes a new and urgent demand on Americans, one
    this country has been all too quick to ignore
    international knowledge and skills are imperative
    for the future security and competitiveness of
    the United States.

  • International polls document a plunge in US
    prestige abroad.
  • International students bring a huge and valuable
    dimension to America.
  • Bringing international students and scholars to

USA Today, 2005
Allan Goodman, President, IIE, 2006
NAFSA Report on Restoring US Competitiveness,
  • Clearly, we need to use education to advance
    tolerance and understanding. Perhaps more than
    ever, international understanding is essential to
    world peace -- understanding between faiths,
    between nations, between cultures.
  • …. Globalization, migration, economic
    integration, communication and travel are
    bringing different races, cultures and
    ethnicities into ever closer contact with each
    other. More than ever before, people understand
    that they are being shaped by many cultures and
    influences, and that combining the familiar with
    the foreign can be a source of powerful knowledge
    and insight.
  • …. We must work to prevent intolerance from
    taking hold in the next generation. We must build
    on the open-mindedness of young people, and
    ensure that their minds remain open.
