There’s some good news coming out of the University of Hawai‘i.

According to a report released by the University - graduation rates at UH Mānoa continue to rise.  A campus wide initiative to utilize new technology, an updated student road map called the STAR system, and counseling within individual colleges are being credited with the rise.   From 2010 to 2015 the six-year rate has increased from 48.6% to 57.1%.  The four-year graduation rate has increased from 17.5% to 27.9%.

Debora Halbert is the Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at UH Mānoa.  She says the way students go to college has changed – students often attend multiple campuses – and work on the side.
