Hawai‘i Community College

The Hawaiʻi Community College alumni network is proud and strong with over 12,482 alumni living in more than 16 countries.  Close to 500 new graduates join this growing ʻohana every year.

Hawaiʻi Community College embraces the concept of Kauhale that traditionally means the Hawaiian village. Kauhale is an ʻohana of administrators, faculty, staff, students, their families, alumni, and the Hawaiʻi Island community that contributes measurably to our success. Kauhale maximizes the "community" in our mission through dialogue, planning, innovation, and assessment across traditional college divisions and units. Kauhale unites all components of Hawaiʻi Community College into an "academic village without walls" for the overall success of our learners, the learners' communities and their families, in the spirit of E ʻImi Pono (seeking excellence).  To promote student learning, Hawaiʻi Community College emphasizes the knowledge and experience necessary for students to pursue academic achievement. As lifelong learners, the students will become productive and engaged citizens and alumni capable of meeting the complex challenges of a global community.

Hawaii Community College is committed to lifelong engagement with its alumni and to sharing pride for our alma mater. There has never been a better time to get involved. Whether you volunteer or attend an event, the opportunities to network with fellow alumni, reconnect with faculty or meet current students are endless.
