Hawaiʻi Community College, Honolulu, Hawaii


Hawaiʻi Community College embraces the concept of Kauhale that traditionally means the Hawaiian village. Kauhale is an ʻohana of administrators, faculty, staff, students, their families, and the Hawaiʻi Island community that contributes measurably to the success of our college's mission and outcomes. Kauhale maximizes the "community" in our mission through dialogue, planning, innovation, and assessment across traditional college divisions and units.Kauhale enables all members of the college ʻohana’ to recognize and celebrate our own individual skills, knowledge, and experiences as well as the skills, knowledge, and experiences of others. Kauhale unites all components of Hawaiʻi Community College into an "academic village without walls" for the overall success of our learners, the learners' communities and their families, in the spirit of E 'Imi Pono (seeking excellence).

Hawaiʻi Community College (HawaiiCC) promotes student learning by embracing our unique Hawaiʻi Island culture and inspiring growth in the spirit of "E ʻImi Pono." Aligned with the UH Community Colleges system's mission, we are committed to serving all segments of our Hawaiʻi Island community.

The uniqueness of the Hawaiʻi CC experience is the focus on four complementary elements that frame the learning climate: Community work-based learning; using and learning Technology; perpetuation of Hawaiian culture; and caring for the Environment.

The College has a rich history of work-based learning, from the award-winning Model Home project where the construction trades programs design and build a house, to working on customer jobs, and including a wide range of internships, service learning and volunteer work. Students in every discipline have opportunities to apply what they have learned in the classroom, and give back to the community.

Technology is interwoven into nearly every aspect of the College and is used to support distance learning utilizing the Internet or videoconferencing. Technology supports classroom instruction such as the use of global positioning systems (GPS) in Agroforestry, computer assisted design (CAD) in the Architectural/Engineering/CAD Technologies Program, and in certificate and degree programs such as Information Technology and CISCO networking.

Learning by doing through community work-based learning and expanding the classroom through the use of technology, spiced with the unique Hawaiʻi Island environment and the uniqueness of Hawaiian culture, equals the Hawaiʻi Community College Learning Experience.
