A Sense of Purpose. A Sense of Place. Preparing knowledgeable, effective, and caring educational leaders to contribute to a just, diverse, and democratic society.
The College of Education envisions a Native Hawaiian place of learning and teaching sustained by a collaborative community of educators who provide innovative research, teaching, leadership, and community engagement. We endeavor to further the field of education and prepare professionals to contribute to a just, diverse, and democratic society and to prioritize the educational well-being of the Native Hawaiian people and others across the Pacific through education. Our vision guides the direction and work of the college in and beyond lāhui Hawai‘i and is informed by tenets of aloha ʻāina, aʻo, mālama, ʻike Hawaiʻi, and pono, creating our sense of purpose and sense of place.
