Hawaii Pacific University (logo).png

Hawaiʻi Pacific University, commonly referred to as HPU, is a private, nonsectarian, coeducational, nonprofit university located in Honolulu and Kaneohe, in the U.S. state of Hawaiʻi. HPU is the largest private university in the central Pacific, most noted for its diverse student body of nearly 5,000 students, representing nearly 65 countries. The school's top academic programs are in Business Administration, Nursing, Biology, Diplomacy and Military Studies, and Social Work.

Oceanic Institute of HPU, an aquaculture research facility, is located at Makapuʻu Point. HPU is also present on military installations on the island of Oʻahu.


History[edit]

HPU was founded in 1965 as Hawaiʻi Pacific College by Paul C.T. Loo, Eureka Forbes, Elizabeth W. Kellerman, and Reverend Edmond Walker. Wanting a private liberal arts college in Honolulu, the four prominent and public-spirited citizens applied for a charter of incorporation for a not-for-profit corporation to be called Hawaiʻi Pacific College. The state of Hawaiʻi granted a charter of incorporation to Hawaiʻi Pacific on September 17, 1965.[2]

In September 1966, Honolulu Christian College established in 1949 merged into Hawaiʻi Pacific College, and a new charter was granted by the state of Hawaiʻi.

In 1967, James L. Meader became Hawaiʻi Pacific College's first President. President Meader, in consultation with community leaders, developed a comprehensive educational program.

When President Meader retired on June 30, 1968, the Board of Trustees elected the Reverend George A. Warmer as Hawaiʻi Pacific's second President. Under President Warmer's leadership, the College implemented academic programs in the liberal arts and cooperative education.

In 1972, Hawaiʻi Pacific College graduated seven students in its first commencement class and in the same year established a School of Business Administration. Chatt G. Wright became the founding Dean of Hawaiʻi Pacific's new School of Business Administration.

In 1973, the College received full accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The following years saw the creation of the English Foundations Program, offering instruction to non-native speakers of English, and the Division of Special Programs, administering off-campus instruction on various military installations on Oʻahu.

President Warmer retired in 1976, and Chatt G. Wright became Hawaiʻi Pacific's third President. Under President Wright's leadership, Hawaiʻi Pacific continued to expand and develop through the 1980s. Augmenting its undergraduate program of baccalaureate and associate degrees, Hawaiʻi Pacific launched a Master of Business Administration program in 1986, a Master of Science in Information Systems program in 1989, and a Master of Arts in Human Resource Management in 1991.

Hawaiʻi Pacific became Hawaiʻi Pacific University (HPU) in 1990.

In 1992, Hawaiʻi Loa College, a small, independent, liberal arts college located on the windward side of Oʻahu, merged into Hawaiʻi Pacific University.

In 2004, the HPU International Vocal Ensemble made their Carnegie Hall debut where they performed Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna and O Magnum Mysterium.

In 2011, President Chatt G. Wright retired and Geoffrey Bannister, Ph.D., became HPU's fourth President on July 1. Born in the United Kingdom and raised in New Zealand, Bannister received his Ph.D. in Geography from the University of Toronto (Canada) and previously served as President of Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana.

In January 2013, the Aloha Tower Development Corporation (ATDC) consented to the University’s ownership and management of the Aloha Tower Marketplace. The approvals passed by ATDC were essential to Hawai'i Pacific’s plan to move forward in redeveloping the Marketplace into a mixed-use property featuring outstanding student housing, retail and dining businesses and community gathering spaces.

HPU completed a merger to bring Oceanic Institute formally into the university in January 2014.

In June 2014, HPU held a ceremonial groundbreaking and traditional Hawaiian blessing at Aloha Tower Marketplace, marking the official start of revitalizing this iconic waterfront destination.

The $50 million Aloha Tower Marketplace revitalization project was completed in August 2015, opening to students and the community. Aloha Tower Marketplace serves as an anchor for the university’s core downtown Honolulu campus, including a first-class center for higher education and university housing integrated within a dynamic community gathering and retail space.

On July 1, 2016, John Yukio Gotanda, J.D., took office as Hawaiʻi Pacific University’s fifth president.[3] Born and raised in Hawaiʻi President Gotanda returns home to lead HPU, following a successful 30-year career on the East Coast. He most recently served as the dean of Villanova University School of Law and earlier in his career practiced at law firms in Boston and D.C., and was an attorney for the US Court of Appeals.

Aloha Tower Marketplace is a mixed-use facility that includes student housing, HPU’s Welcome Center, Learning Commons, Lounge, Student Café, Student Fitness Center, and a variety of restaurants, businesses, classrooms, and meeting rooms for university and community use.

The Hawaii Loa campus, commonly referred to as HLC, is located eight miles away from the downtown campus, near Castle Junction in Kāneʻohe, on the windward side of the Koʻolau Range. HLC was originally built by Hawaiʻi Loa College, a liberal arts school that was merged into Hawaiʻi Pacific University in 1992. This campus houses the natural sciences, nursing, public health, and social work programs, however, other general courses are offered at HLC.

Oceanic Institute[edit]

The Oceanic Institute (OI) of HPU is a research facility focused on the advancement of sustainable aquaculture technologies. OI of HPU is located on a 56-acre site at Makapuʻu Point on the windward coast of Oʻahu. OI conducts research, education, and training that focuses on marine aquaculture, aquatic feeds and nutrition, and coastal resource management. In 2013, OI of HPU commissioned a teaching laboratory to complement classroom and conference space at OI of HPU’s Ocean Learning Center (OLC). The OLC annex supports biotechnology research and education with two research labs, a teaching lab, and a distance learning center.

Military programs[edit]

HPU's Military Campus Programs (MCP) operates full-service campuses on Oʻahu's US military installations, including Pearl Harbor, Hickam Air Force Base, Tripler Army Medical Center, Camp H. M. Smith, Schofield Barracks, Kaneohe Marine Corps Base Hawaii, and Fort Shafter.
