Celebrating Service

Mahalo to Dr. Michael Chun, who has dedicated his life to education and service, including 25 years as an HPU trustee. At our recent Trustees' Dinner, we honored Dr. Chun and presented a video of friends and colleagues sharing their warm thoughts about him (see here). We thank our supporters, who made the night special and helped raise more than $160,000 to promote student success -- including $25,000 Leadership Sponsor Kobayashi, Sugita, & Goda, LLP.

LauProfessors with years of field experience. Flexible class schedules that allowed me to gain hands-on experience through internships and a part-time job. Relevant courses that gave me the tools and the skills to succeed. Networking opportunities with peers and professionals alike. A global experience through cultural diversity. These are the reasons I chose to attend Hawai‘i Pacific University for both my undergraduate and graduate degree.

Through the professors and my peers at HPU, I have expanded my network and work experience. HPU has given me opportunities and experiences that have influenced who I am today.
