A Plan for Hawai‘i Athletics
The Time is Now!!

Strategic Context: The Role Of UH Athletics
The University of Hawai‘i at M
noa (UHM) is ranked among the top 150 universities in theworld according to the 2013 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) – accordinglythis also places UHM among the top 67 United States institutions.Tom Apple, Chancellor of the University of Hawai‘i at M
noa, has articulated a powerful vision torealize our greater potential and elevate our position as a
 global leading research institution
Helping students identify and pursue their passion so that they achieve optimal academicsuccess and true life transformation;
Generating new research opportunities that benefit society;
Serving as a leading economic driver for the state; and
Grounding UH M
noa in the traditional values of the Native Hawaiian culture.As a highly visible aspect of university life, the Department of Athletics is aligned withChancellor Apple’s vision, embracing the concept of “One University” and a culture of collaboration and teamwork across campus and throughout the state.Serving more than 20,000 students, UH M
noa athletic programs participate in the NationalCollegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Football Bowl Sub-Division (FBS – formally Division1-A) providing opportunities for more than 470 young men and women competing in 21intercollegiate sports (7 Men's, 12 Women's, and 2 coed). Hawai’i Athletics is the highest levelof live-sport competition in the state and holds the coveted position of 
"hometown team" byan enthusiastic fan base.The role of the Department of Athletics is to serve the student-athlete through an academicdegree program and intercollegiate sports to develop their capabilities to the fullest. Cornerstonesof this experience are promoting sportsmanship, equal opportunity, and diversity among participants in our athletics programs. In addition, UH Athletics strives to contribute toward theeconomic development of Hawai‘i through a program that brings excitement to our alumni andfans, and to the supporters and stakeholders of the State of Hawai‘i.The Department’s training and competitive facilities are its classrooms, wherein talented student-athletes hone their skills to pursue their passions and reach their potential. Coaches preparestudent-athletes for competition and success as students, athletes and citizens - teaching lifelessons that nurture future leaders by emphasizing personal responsibility. In the pursuit of competitive excellence, athletics affirms its higher purpose to motivate student-athletes todevelop into exemplary champions, who in turn inspire future Rainbow Warriors and RainbowWahine.In 2009, the UHM Department of Athletics developed a comprehensive strategic plan, “A 21
 Century Strategy for Enhancing Our Winning Tradition, 2009-2014.” Recently, under theleadership of new Athletics Director Ben Jay, the strategic plan has been updated to address theurgency of a program in decline and a rapidly changing national landscape in intercollegiateathletics that includes the following:
Continued conference realignment brought about by the search for additional financialresources and a significant increase in television money for the “super-conferences” (Pac-12, Big-12, SEC, Big-10, and ACC);
The threat of the “super-conferences” and their “have” universities creating a newdivision within the NCAA or breaking away altogether;
Increased separation between the “haves and have-nots” among the NCAA FBS schoolsas exemplified by the gap in resources within college athletics that has never beengreater, and is growing (A recent analysis by USA TODAY Sports shows the averageSEC public school's operational expenses in 2011-12 were $88.5 million, according tothe most recently available information reported by the schools to the NCAA while theaverage Mountain West school spent $41.3 million – the divide is expected to growdramatically with the advent of the College Football Playoff);
The continuing “arms race” that includes building new and enhanced athletic facilities toattract the best prospective student-athletes and provide amenities for fans; and
The need for Hawai’i to immediately create additional opportunities and enhance our  presence in the Pacific Rim as a core part of our strategy to make the University of Hawai‘i attractive to the major conferences.
The Time is NOW 
to position UH Athletics as a NCAA top 50 program - financially secure withan image, rank and reputation to be sought after by the major conferences – matching theacademic excellence the University has already achieved.
Vision, Mission, and Values of Hawai‘i Athletics
Bring pride to Hawai‘i and our University by becoming a consensus national
athletics program as measured by the National Association of Collegiate Director of Athletics (NACDA)Director’s Cup.
 Prepare our student-athletes to become successful in life – through our ongoing commitment to provide the highest quality academic and competitive experiences at the University of Hawai‘i.
Our values are shaped by how we treat each other, our external stakeholders, and how we go aboutoperating the Department of Athletics. Our core values are to be practiced daily, promoted withoutcompromise, and communicated clearly through actions. Our core values are
