What is HENC?
The Hawaii Educational Networking Consortium (HENC) is a collaborative relationship which was established in December 1993 among the University of Hawaii, the State Department of Education, and the East-West Center.
In 1999 the Consortium added the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools to its membership and sanctioned a new Memorandum of Understanding. Collectively these four member entities have a combined user-base of over 400,000 students, adult learners, faculty, and staff that live, work and learn in all areas of the State.
The purpose of HENC's effort is to facilitate and coordinate Hawaii-based cooperative activities relating to the development, promotion and support of telecommunications technology in education and research.
HENC is guided in its action by an advisory council which consists of representation by the four member entities, counsel from State government as well as advisors from businesses in the private sector.
