Kualiʻi Position Statements and Recommendations
Over the past 35 years, several seminal reports have been written recommending hundreds of ways the University of Hawai‘i System and UH Mānoa can be more responsive to Native Hawaiian communities and more reflective of Indigenous Hawai‘i. The Kūaliʻi Council has been a consistent presence in advocating for institutional transformation grounded in Native Hawaiian frameworks.
