Honoring our Past, Celebrating our Present, Creating our Future


A dynamic second century for UH Mānoa now begins! This university is highly accomplished in many areas, particularly in research, but aspires to be among the most impressive, highly respected universities and serve as a destination of choice for students, faculty, staff and the public. Our mission is to solve society's problems through teaching, research and public service--an effort that creates great social good. Working with folks across the campus and the state to move UH Mānoa forward is tremendously exciting to me--please join your UH Mānoa ‘ohana in this effort.
