(Welcome)

n. vast and deep

Like its literal definition in Hawaiian, the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa offers a vast array of opportunities unique as the place we are named for.

In traditional times, Mānoa valley was expertly cared for and cultivated by Native Hawaiians. In return, it provided an abundance of sustenance and protection for its residents. Today, Mānoa continues to furnish the resources that enable our institution to be a thriving land-, sea-, and space- grant university. In keeping with the Native Hawaiian manner of reciprocity, these blessings are passed on to you in the form of academic excellence so that you are equipped to take care of yourself, humanity, Hawaiʻi, and the world.

WELCOME TO AN EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE LIKE NONE FOUND ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD.

One of my most influential experiences on campus was co-founding the SOEST (School of Ocean and Earth Science Technology) Maile Mentoring Bridge during my graduate studies which provided a source of inspiration and led to many peer and faculty-based relationships that are still important to me today. This program was born out of the hope that as the faces of science change against a rapidly evolving and increasingly diverse society, that we can provide Native Hawaiian and local students fulfilling, meaningful and exciting career paths in earth science.” DR.

THE STATE OF HAWAI‘I HAS TWO OFFICIAL LANGUAGES: Hawaiian and English

Maui Lāna‘i Kaho‘olawe

‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i experienced a dramatic decline in the 20th century due to an English-only policy for all schools in Hawai‘i. Today, Hawaiian is recognized as an official language and the number of those who can speak Hawaiian has grown steadily in homes and in schools.

Hawai‘i Island

FLAG OF HAWAI‘I The eight stripes on the Hawaiian flag represents the eight Hawaiian islands.

HAWAIIAN ALPHABET There are only 13 letters in the Hawaiian alphabet:

"Ua mau ke ea o ka ‘āina i ka pono."

DID YOU KNOW?

"The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness."

Native Hawaiians lived in Hawai‘i for over one hundred generations with various island kingdoms. In 1810, Kamehameha I united all the islands under a single Hawaiian Kingdom. O‘ahu was divided into six moku (districts). Moku were used to govern the management of underground water resources: Ko‘olaupoko, Kona, ‘Ewa, Wai‘anae, Waialua and Ko‘olauloa

‘Iolani Palace is the only royal palace in the U.S. and had electricity five years before the White House, and 17 years before Buckingham Palace.

Duke Kahanamoku was a Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) and a five-time Olympic medalist in swimming. He was also the world’s best known surfer, and set the standards of modern day surfing.

There are two mountain ranges on O‘ahu: Ko‘olau and Wai‘anae Mountains

Aloha

'Āina

Aloha ‘Aina which means, “Love of the land,” is a central idea of the Hawaiian culture. It is the belief that if you love and care for the land, it will care for you. Enjoy and experience our islands, and remember that Aloha ‘Aina is not only a way of thinking, but a way of life.

Attending UH Mānoa has helped me to stay connected to the ocean and nature by getting an amazing education while still enjoying the ocean just a few miles away. I love living in Hawai'i because it's the only place in the world that I can experience crystal clear waters, amazing waterfalls, city life, and a variety of spectacular people." NOLAN OMURA
