The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo is currently undertaking a strategic planning exercise and welcomes feedback and comments on its draft mission and vision.

“The first step in this exercise is to revise UH Hilo’s mission (the University’s purpose) and vision (our aim for 2020) and we’d like to invite feedback from students, faculty, staff, alumni, community members and other partners,” said Sian Millard, UH Hilo strategic planning facilitator. “We want to stress that these draft statements are just that–draft–and we now welcome and encourage constructive comments on them.”

UH Hilo draft mission:

'A'ohe pau ka 'ike i ka hālau ho'okahi

One learns from many sources

UH Hilo is committed to interactive learning, discovery, and creativity to benefit our increasingly intercultural communities.

UH Hilo draft vision for 2020:

UH Hilo is a community of scholars working together across disciplines and differences to address real world issues.
