The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo is characterized as a comprehensive, regional university. Scholarships and research are an important part of faculty work and student engagement, but the primary focus is on providing high-quality baccalaureate and limited postgraduate education.
While UH Hilo actively recruits residents of Hawaiʻi Island, its programs are also attractive to prospective students from other islands, the mainland U.S., and internationally. Students across the state may select UH Hilo not only for its distinctive undergraduate programs, but for its rural setting, its intimate character, or for an interest in leaving home without leaving the State.
