Knowledge is more easily grasped

when you receive a hands-on education.

At Hawai‘i Pacific University, a deliberately intimate learning environment empowers you to get up-close and personal with the subjects you’re passionate about. Along with the sort of unmatched diversity that only exists at the intersection of East and West, of urban campus and island paradise, you’ll graduate more highly educated and both market- and world-ready.

Look Closer. See Further. Do More. >
