The University of Hawai’i at Hilo places as its number one priority a commitment to academic excellence. This dedication to quality education can be found in each of the six colleges, with many programs and activities not found anywhere else in the world. Where else will you find Computer Science students placing in the top six percent on national computer science exams, studying alongside Hawaiian Studies students who are working their way toward the only master’s degree in an indigenous language offered in the nation? In fact, at UH Hilo, these two programs are perfectly compatible. In 1999-2000, it was a UH Hilo Hawaiian Studies undergraduate who designed the most advanced computer programming for any indigenous language in the world!
