Hawaii

There is a range of two-year, four-year, graduate, private, and public institutions of higher education in Hawaii. The largest is the University of Hawaii System, which has 10 campuses and dozens of educational, training, and research centers on six Hawaiian Islands. More than 60,000 students are enrolled in this system, with a third of them attending the flagship campus in Manoa, which is ranked among the top national universities by U.S. News & World Report. Other major institutions include Brigham Young University-Hawaii, which is also ranked by U.S. News as one of the best regional colleges in the West.

A key focus of Hawaii’s state government is to improve education, workforce development, and educational attainment of Hawaiian natives. Over the next few years, it aims to increase access for underrepresented students to the University of Hawaii System by providing financial aid and support on campus. It also looks to form advisory boards to meet with business leaders, labor representatives, and educators to align programs so that students are trained for jobs that will be needed. It’s also already on its way to increasing educational attainment in the state, as the University of Hawaii has doubled the number of native Hawaiian students in community colleges, increased community college graduation rates by 35%, and more than tripled financial aid to native Hawaiian students.
