The new West Oʻahu campus is expected to open in fall 2012. HTIC, the only American campus of the private Tokai University Educational System, plans to move next door.
Under the arrangement, students from Japan and Hawaiʻi will live in the same dormitories and take advantage of shared programs and other facilities.
“By placing one of Japan’s outstanding institutions of higher education alongside our newest and most modern university campus, we will offer opportunities that benefit both campuses,” says UH System President M.R.C. Greenwood.
Students who complete their two-year liberal arts degree at HTIC will be able to pursue bachelor’s degrees at UH West Oʻahu.
