Mission
The University of Hawai'i at Hilo is a comprehensive, primarily baccalaureate granting institution offering a rigorous education in a caring and personalized atmosphere. The University is located on the east side of Hawai'i island, about 200 miles from Honolulu, in the city of Hilo. Hilo offers a moderate cost of living, beautiful environment, and a highly diverse low density population of about 45,000. The University is set against the backdrop of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, two of five volcanoes that form the big island of Hawai'i. UH Hilo offers extensive "hands on" learning, service, and leadership opportunities, and especially encourages close student-faculty interaction and collaboration on research projects. Hawaii island's incomparable natural and cultural environment serves as a learning laboratory; the university also offers unusually rich opportunities for intercultural exchange--as we are located in the most ethnically diverse county in the US and attract students from around the world.
