What We Do
The University of Hawaiʻi President’s Commission on the Status of Women is committed to support, well-being, development and advancement of all university women. The Commission actively promotes a working and learning environment free of sexism and discrimination through policy, advocacy and education.
This system-wide commission is composed of faculty, staff and students appointed by the President of the University of Hawaiʻi, with representatives from our 10 campuses and system offices. (Revised Apr. 18, 2011)

- We foster an awareness, understanding and recognition of the potential, contributions, special challenges and many roles women play in a university community;
- We develop alliances with like organizations throughout the community, state and nation.
