About Us

Hawaii Undergraduate Initiative (HUI) is a summer leadership program providing a free 3-credit summer college course for a select group of incoming freshmen at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. In addition to the summer course, HUI offers engaging and insightful workshops on using university resources, exploring academics/careers and developing writing/math skills. All HUI participating scholars will be paired with a Peer Mentor who will support and assist them in their transition from high school to college.
