Faculty Assembly

VISION STATEMENT

Hawai'i Pacific University is first and foremost a learning community, whose members come together from around the world to learn in a spirit of caring, honesty, freedom, and 'ohana (family).

VALUES STATEMENT

Cooperation, communication, and collegiality are the foundation of our community. We fulfill the responsibilities of our educational mission through mutual trust and respect, innovation and involvement, expertise and intellectual fellowship. To support this important process, we encourage ongoing dialogue and continual self-evaluation. Recognizing the sources of our current success, we strive together to harmonize academic quality and financial viability. We offer all members of our community the opportunity to excel, including resources and rewards commensurate with individual contributions and potential.

The members of our faculty are active and influential partners in the governance and growth of the institution, particularly in academic matters. They excel in teaching, a commitment they balance with scholarship, university service, and community service, all of which they consider to be interdependent and mutually beneficial responsibilities that contribute to student learning.

We are committed to serving our local and global communities, and we challenge our students to acquire the knowledge, skills, and experiences that will enable them to think critically, speak and write effectively, and understand the workings of an increasingly interconnected world. Our curriculum, which builds on our international diversity by combining American educational traditions with global perspectives, stresses rigorous intellectual engagement, relevant career education, and social responsibility. Graduates of Hawai'i Pacific University are responsible citizens and active, independent, life-long learners.
