Guam - With fall semester well underway, education officials are sharing their progress reports.

At a table talks hosted earlier this week by Senator Aline Yamashita, the senator met with University of Guam president Dr. Robert Underwood and Guam Community College president Dr. Mary Okada.

As reported by Underwood, UOG students and staff can expect changes in coming months as a result of their good to great initiative that focuses on UOG's strengths, passions, and available resources.

"An example he raised was the closing of the planetarium. Throughout the community that wasn't quite popular but at the university level that was a decision they made it wasn't one of their college programs it wasn't something that everyone across the board supported and it didn't bring in a lot of money and it didn't make money," he said.

Meanwhile, Okada reminds lawmakers GCC's need for $1.5 million in Tourist Attraction Funds in order to supplement the 2013 Manpower Development Fund as the revenues were not coming in as anticipated. The funds are necessary to support GCC's apprenticeship training program as well as operations.
