About the Program

What can I expect from the Parent program?

The Parent & Family program has been designed to provide parents and participating family members with essential information about University of Hawai´i at Mānoa (UHM) academics, resources and services presented in an interactive format.

What will I be able to do during the Parent & Family program

  • Talk to representatives from academic and campus life programs and student support services
  • Interact with current UHM students who will also share their perspectives on services, programs, and opportunities available to students
  • Discuss important issues about the next phase of your relationship and look at ways to support your student during their first-year at UHM
  • Visit the Resource Fair
  • Tour the UHM Campus
  • Meet parents of other incoming freshmen and transfer students

The Parent program is meant to assist you as you provide support and coaching to your student.

Can I sit in on my child's orientation program?

Unfortunately, no. The program we offer students has been designed not only to provide information and social interaction that new students need, but also fosters their independence and self-reliance as they begin the transition process into UHM.

As a result, the student program is designed specifically to meet your student's needs, while the parent program is designed to meet your needs and answer questions related to what might interest you as a parent or family member.
