Kūlana O Kapolei

Kūlana O Kapolei is helping UH West O‘ahu become a premier, transdisciplinary, indigenous-serving institution. Through this supportive and dynamic learning environment students will learn to embody Native Hawaiian values and perpetuate their core purpose – to establish and maintain aloha in all relationships with land, people and community.
