Native Hawaiian Enrollment

 ʻO ke kahua ma mua, ma hope ke kūkulu.

Enrollment Overview

We provide a brief assortment of fall 2021 enrollment data on Native Hawaiians (NH) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UH Mānoa). This information is used to better understand NHs at UH Mānoa as it is tied to the NH Reports. We hope this will be a guide to inform and improve UH Mānoa’s practices and be a convenient starting place for our communities to better understand our NH students through our data.
