Multiculturalism

Oʻahu is the third largest Hawaiian island. Often called “The Gathering Place,” it is home to a majority of the state’s population, and features more racial diversity than the U.S. as a whole. Close to a quarter of the population is multiracial (comprised of two or more ethnic groups). This diversity is also reflected in the UH Mānoa student population.
