Founded in 1965, Hawai‘i Pacific University (HPU) has grown to become the state’s leading private, non-profit university with three campuses, six military campuses, and online courses offered to students located around the world. HPU prides itself on maintaining strong academic programs, small class sizes, individual attention to students, and a diverse faculty and student population. With students from all 50 U.S. states and nearly 80 countries, HPU is America’s #1 university for diversity (USA Today, 2014). HPU is a well-rounded academic institution with more than 50 undergraduate degree programs and 14 graduate programs. Academic strengths range from international business to marine science to diplomacy and military studies. Our innovative programs anticipate the changing needs of the community and prepare our graduates to live, work, and learn as active members of a global society. Faculty range from top-level executives at Fortune 500 companies to state government leaders who enliven the learning experience with real-world knowledge. The caliber of our faculty and their passion for teaching is one of the reasons HPU is consistently ranked one of the top regional universities in the west by The Princeton Review and U.S. News and World Report. HPU’s student-centered approach and low student-faculty ratio of 15:1 naturally results in personal attention and one-on-one guidance. Even with a student body of nearly 7,000 students, the average class size is less than 20, which allows student to enjoy all of the technological and academic resources expected at a large university, delivered within the atmosphere of a small school.
