Native Hawaiian Student Services (NHSS) prepares Hawaiian students to build upon a legacy of excellence, with creativity and confidence, in order to fulfill the kuleana of their time, thereby leading Hawai‘i into a thriving, life affirming, de-occupied future. Our programs are designed to improve institutional access, student-faculty engagement, research, leadership, and success, by fostering Hawaiian identities and cultivating Hawaiian scholarship.

NHSS maintains two student Resource Centers at UH Manoa. The two spaces provide similar services and programs our students have come to value and enjoy: academic and wellness counseling; math, writing and Hawaiian language tutoring; PC and Mac computer and printing access; Promethean Smart Board technology; launa (socialize, relax) and meeting space; programs and services referrals; academic enrichment, career development and technology workshops; cultural and community engagement opportunities. Our Student Resource Centers continue to serve Native Hawaiians on campus with resources that connect them to one another.
