The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa enjoys a geographical location with convergent influences from the U.S. continent, Asia and the Pacific. Since no nationality is dominant in the state’s diverse blend of cultures, the campus is an inclusive mecca. In particular, the College of Social Sciences operates as a Hawaiian place of learning, epitomized by units under its Native Hawaiian Initiative. In addition, the College is a Living Laboratory, with a robust appreciation of research and restoration.
The College of Social Sciences is helping to inspire the next generation of leaders among students and faculty through its multi-pronged Native Hawaiian Initiative.
