Four Manoa students sitting in front of a tree

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Admissions and Enrollment Management office is asking faculty and staff to assist with identifying prospective local students in a new recruitment effort.

“There are many of us having conversations with our keiki on the next steps following middle and high school. Whether this is a son, daughter, niece, nephew or grandchild, as elders to our younger generations, we hold an invaluable responsibility to prepare our next generation for success,” said Roxie M. Shabazz, assistant vice chancellor for enrollment management and director of admissions. “While this is an effort to increase our local student enrollment, all referrals are welcome.”

Faculty and staff are being invited to fill out prospect cards, so current middle and high school students and their parents can receive information such as admissions updates, fun facts and tips on the college enrollment process.

This is the latest in a number of marketing promotions led by Admissions and Enrollment Management. They include organizing newly accepted student receptions locally and in states such as California, Oregon, Washington and Colorado; a campaign of 30-second radio spots that ran more than 1,400 times on 20 local radio stations in April; and a new and exciting interactive website.

In addition, the Mānoa Experience, the annual University Preview Day, will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2018. It will feature interactive hands-on activities, demonstrations and displays that showcase the vast opportunities on campus.
