Hoʻolulu Council

E Komo Mai! 

The Ho‘olulu Council’s mission is to honor, empower, and advance Native Hawaiian people, culture, and language through excellence in higher education. The Council serves as an advisory body to the Chancellor of Hawai‘i Community College. The Council was responsible for the development of the college’s Hawai‘i Papa O Ke Ao plan to indigenize the institution. The Ho‘olulu Council is a member of the University of Hawai‘i’s Pūko‘a Council which serves as an advisor to the UH President on issues that have particular relevance for Ka Pae ‘Āina o Hawai‘i and Native Hawaiians. The Ho‘olulu Council is also represented on the Community College’s Native Hawaiian Chairs Council and serves as an advisor to the UH Vice President of Community Colleges.

Membership on the council is open to any individual, associated with Hawaiʻi Community College as faculty, staff, administration and/or learner, who supports the council's mission.
