About Hawai’i CC Alumni & Friends

Hawai‘i CC Alumni & Friends at Hawai‘i Community College was chartered by a group of current and retired faculty members, staff, administration and alumni.

The primary goal is to enrich the university experience, foster fellowship, and achieve educational excellence by challenging and supporting the university through the interaction of the alumni, school and community. The events and activities of the Hawai’i CC Alumni & Friends aim to form a continuing link to the college among those interested in “staying connected.” Membership is open to anyone who would like to be more involved in the campus activities and events and who may have an interest in supporting the goals of Hawai’i CC and the University of Hawai’i. Faculty, staff and current students are also welcome.  Membership includes invitations to presentations like this one and updates on campus events, which may be of interest.

About UH Foundation Office of Alumni Relations
The University of Hawai‘i Foundation Office of Alumni Relations (UHFAR) team is responsible for fostering connections and relationships between each campus, its alumni and the broader community for the University of Hawai‘i System.

UHFAR partners closely with UH campus leadership and departments, the UHF development operations team, UHAA Board of Directors and associated chapters to mobilize alumni and the community to build pride, connection, and support for the University of Hawai‘i. We provide both targeted and broad communication services, event support, and program strategy to promote alumni connections with their alma mater.
