Why study at Hawai'i Pacific University?
Hawai‘i Pacific University (HPU) is the largest private, non-profit university in the State of Hawai’i, U.S. and it is home to over 4,000 students from Hawai‘i, the mainland, and over 70 countries around the world. Fusing this unmatched cultural diversity with personal support and a deliberately intimate learning environment, HPU enables students to get up-close and personal with the subjects they’re most passionate about. And when they do, when they look closer, they are empowered to see further and to do more. It’s how we ensure our graduates enter a competitive global workplace market-ready.
In 2016, the Princeton Review named HPU a “Best in the West” university. That same year, The Chronicle of Higher Education named us the most diverse private nonprofit university in the nation. And in 2018, The New York Times listed us as one of the top 8% of private colleges in the nation for graduates’ income mobility; our students also enjoy the #1 Return on Investment on the Islands.
