OVERVIEW OF THE PROGRAM
A. Mission and Vision of the College
Maui Community College is a learning-centered institution that provides
affordable, high quality credit and non-credit educational opportunities to a
diverse community of lifelong learners.
We envision a world-class college that meets current and emerging Maui
County education and training needs through innovative, high quality
programs offered in stimulating learning environments. The College mission,
goals, and actions will be guided by the Native Hawaiian reverence for the
ahupua`a, a practice of sustaining and sharing diverse but finite resources for
the benefit of all.
B. Mission and Vision of the Program
Program vision for the next five years
The Food Services Program of Maui Community College
envisions itself as a world class culinary arts training center for
the state of Hawaii. The “Maui Culinary Academy” as we
would like to be called has the potential to draw and train
students from Maui, across the state, and the rest of the country.
The new 14 million dollar facility will be able to provide
instruction for its primary goal which is to provide instruction
leading toward the present three degree options including an
AAS in culinary arts, AAS in Baking and an AAS in Restaurant
Supervision. Non-credit instruction will also provide for the
community of Maui and other residents either permanent or
temporary. The Maui Culinary Academy will also be a research
and training center for innovative ideas and food development
for farmers and other entrepreneurs interested in food sales and
marketing of food items.
