Parents and Families

Parents and Families

In Hawaii, you will hear the term 'OHANA used a lot. In a literal sense, it means family. As the parent or family member of an HPU student, we want to make sure you know that you are part of the HPU 'Ohana as well. 

We know what a vital role you have played in supporting your students during their journey to college. You have been their biggest cheerleaders during each step, and have served as their greatest challenges to make sure they are growing and developing as young adults. This doesn't change just because your student has turned 18, moved away from home, or hit any other important life event. You are going to continue to play a large role in your student's success, and we want to help!

Our hope is that this page can provide resources for you during the course of your student's time at HPU to help you to feel both confident and informed. Studies show that parent involvement enhances a student’s overall collegiate experience, and we want to make sure you have the proper information and tools to support them as they begin establishing their independence. 

Again, welcome to the HPU 'Ohana, and please do reach out to us if you have any issues or concerns.
