Chancellor Rockne Freitas

Welina Mai,

It is a historic time in the University’s history with our brand new Kapolei campus opening after almost 40 years in temporary facilities. We invite you to be part of the University’s state-of-art, sustainable campus designed with 21st Century learning in mind. Your goals and academic success are important to us and it is an honor to provide you with a high-quality education at our new campus.

Here, you will learn directly from professors with degrees from the nation’s top universities who are experts in their fields and who share a passion for teaching. They are dedicated to student learning and I am grateful that they have chosen to teach at UH West O‘ahu.

We take pride in our role in providing you, tomorrow’s leaders, with a meaningful and relevant educational experience. You have chosen a special place to learn, a place that has continued to serve the people of leeward, central and north shore O‘ahu and the entire State of Hawai‘i since its beginning in 1976.

We look forward to serving you and our island community for years to come.
Mahalo for letting us be part of your future as you embark on the next adventure to academic and professional success.

Kulia i ka nu‘u,

Rockne C. Freitas,
Chancellor, University of Hawai‘i – West O‘ahu
