All University of Hawai‘i staff, faculty and admin are invited to apply to present in one or more of our 2022 Summer Camp session formats:
Summer Camp Sessions.

🐟 Open Swim: This 30-minute presentation is meant to share resources or strategies/processes. While we encourage all formats to include some level of engagement, there is limited time for “hands-on” learning. This session is ideal for sharing lessons learned or strategies you employ in your area that you believe will be helpful to others!

🏕️ Group Excursion: This 70-minute engaging, interactive session format is intended to provide the time to facilitate meaningful conversation and/or application of ideas. This session format is a fantastic opportunity to grapple with interesting issues, problem-solve/brainstorm as a group, and/or introduce a concept/resource while allowing participants to plan for its application in their own context!

⛰️ Activity Hour: These 40-minute health and wellness-focused sessions help engage participants in moving, meditating, and planning for healthy, holistic approaches to work/life balance! 

🏖 Friday Field Day: New this year is our first in-person Summer Camp event at Kapi‘olani Park! We are stoked to gather and build pilina with opportunities to socialize, eat, play games, and hopefully engage in a few hands-on, fun-filled sessions. We’ve got a park permit, endless sunshine, and a beach view, so if there’s something you’d love to see happen on Friday Field Day, throw us a proposal – we’re up for some fun!

Please submit your session proposal(s) here: Kapi‘olani Summer Camp Proposal Submission
You are welcome to propose multiple sessions – please submit each session proposal individually.

The deadline to apply is May 30, 2022 by 11:59pm HST. Presenters will be notified of their acceptance mid-summer.

We hope to hear from you!

EUTF Duplicate After-Tax Deductions Corrected for the May 20, 2022 Pay Date

Note: This message is only intended for employees who are employed in a position working “20 or more hours per week and for at least 3 months” and are enrolled in the EUTF health benefits plan.
 
The university was notified by Hawaii Information Portal (HIP) Service Center, that some employees were inadvertently double deducted for their after-tax medical deductions on May 20, 2022 paychecks. This was due to an oversight by both EUTF and HIP in the processing of a new file as they recently transitioned to a new system. They have identified all the employees affected and processed off-cycle checks on May 18, 2022, to refund the duplicate deductions back to the employees. These refunds will be paid via direct deposit on May 20, 2022 pay date. If any affected employees are not enrolled in direct deposit, the UH Payroll department will send out the refund checks once they receive them. 
 
HIP has canceled the duplicate deductions for all employees in their system to prevent this from happening again and apologized for any inconvenience this may cause. Please note that not all employees were impacted, however, we are providing this notification so that you are aware of this issue and can check your pay statement.
 
To summarize: You may notice a duplicate after-tax medical deduction on your May 20, 2022 paycheck and those affected employees will receive a refund check via direct deposit or paper check. KapCC HR strongly encourages everyone to regularly check their pay statement. To view your paycheck or pay statement: go to ps.hawaii.edu (UH VPN required if teleworking) > click on Hawaii Information Portal (HIP) > Click on pay statement.
 
Please email kapcchr@hawaii.edu for any questions or concerns.

Testing Center: Service Updates for Summer and Fall 2022

Photo by Sigmund on Unsplash

Due to a 250% increase in DCO and hybrid classes, the Testing Center is concerned about our capacity to meet everyone’s expectations for testing. In consultation with the VCAA and on a trial basis, for Summer and Fall 2022, the Testing Center will offer the following services for Kapiʻolani CC classes and Kapiʻolani CC students taking classes at other campuses.  All tests are conducted in-person and by appointment only. The Testing Center does not support remote proctoring. With the uncertainties of the pandemic, we recommend having a backup assessment plan in place.

For Placement/Qualifying Tests:

  • Placement Testing (ACCUPLACER and Foreign Languages)

  • ATI TEAS

For Academic Tests, supported test types are listed by class modality:

Face-to-Face (F2F):

  • Online tests only (Laulima, Pearson, etc)

  • Make Up Tests (online and paper tests)

  • Students with testing accommodations (online and paper tests)

Hybrid:

  • Online and Paper Tests

  • Make Up Tests (online and paper tests)

  • Students with testing accommodations (online and paper tests)

Any form of Distance Education, including DCO (Distance-Completely Online)*, DTV (Distance-Cable TV), DIV (Distance-Interactive Video):

  • Make Up Tests (online and paper tests)

  • Students with testing accommodations (online and paper tests).

*Per University of Hawaiʻi system memo, May 7, 2021, subject: Instructional Method Codes, for DCO classes the “student is never required to visit campus or a UH site (e.g. for testing…)”.

If you have any questions, please contact Sunny Pai at sunyeen@hawaii.edu or visit the Testing Center website.
