The University of Hawaiʻi System, established in 1907, is a public college and university system that offers associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees through three university campuses, seven community college campuses, an employment training center, three university centers, four education centers and various research facilities distributed across six islands throughout the state of Hawaiʻi. In the entire system, there are approximately 94,440 undergraduate and graduate students. 

Because of Hawai‘i’s geographic diversity that encompasses erupting volcanoes, frozen summits, tropical rain forests and the deep ocean, university research is equally as diverse with its renowned research programs in astronomy, earth and ocean sciences, medicine and tropical agriculture. The University of Hawai‘i’s flagship campus, the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, is ranked by the National Science Foundation as one of the top 30 public universities for federal research funding in science and engineering.

Our work with the University of Hawai’i System includes two investigator awards from our Marine Microbiology Initiative and support for the design and development of a mobile science laboratory to stimulate science education across Hawaii.
