Hawaii Pacific University

Hawai‘i Pacific University (HPU) is a private, nonprofit university in O‘ahu, with urban and tropical campuses in downtown Honolulu and at the foot of the Ko‘olau Mountains on the windward side of the island, respectively. Established in 1965, HPU is home to over 5,000 students from Hawai‘i, the mainland, and over 70 countries around the world. Fusing the University’s unmatched cultural diversity with personal support and a deliberately intimate learning environment, students get up-close and personal with the subjects they’re most passionate about, enabling them to “look closer, see further, and do more.” HPU has been named “Best in the West” (Princeton Review, 2016), the most diverse private nonprofit university in the country (The Chronicle of Higher Education, 2016), and one of the top 8% of private colleges for graduates’ income mobility (The New York Times, 2017). HPU students also enjoy the #1 Return on Investment on the Islands.
