Institutional Profile

The University of Hawai'i (UH), established in 1907, is a land-grant, sea-grant and space-grant university, with the mission of serving the public by creating, preserving, and transmitting knowledge in a multi-cultural environment, supporting the values and goals of a democratic society and improving quality of life for present and future generations.

The UH system includes three university campuses and seven community colleges, conferring associate, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees; plus a number of university and education centers, and research facilities, across the Hawaiian Islands. All campuses of the UH system are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and is the only state-supported institution of higher learning in Hawai'i.  Numerous professional programs offered by UH campuses are also separately accredited by their appropriate professional accrediting body.

The University is positioned to take advantage of the islands' unique location, physical, and biological environment, and rich cultural setting. As the only public higher education institution in Hawai'i, the UH system bears a special responsibility to prepare a highly educated citizenry. In addition, the system supports the creation of quality jobs and the preparation of an educated workforce to fill them. Building on the strong liberal arts foundation, the UH system prepares the full array of workers from engineers, scientists, physicians, to artists, teachers, technicians, to marketing specialists who are needed in a technologically advanced and culturally diverse island state.
