Preparing students for health professions with hands-on experiences
Sponsored by Hawaii Pacific University
In 2019, Hawaii Pacific University’s College of Health and Society (CHS) made the move to Waterfront Plaza. There, its new classrooms, offices, and labs bring an added value to the student experience at the university. The college is committed to preparing globally-ready, culturally-responsible and community-engaged leaders and professionals who focus on creating an inclusive and healthy society.
The College of Health and Society prepares students for real-world experiences in the fields of nursing, public health, and social work through hands-on learning in applied practice settings. Through this educational approach, students have the opportunity to enhance the communities around them while becoming the next generation of healthcare leaders.
Educational programs at the college are student-focused and designed to prepare students for the health professions by building on a strong liberal arts education and teaching discipline-specific knowledge and skills reflective of evidence-based practices through bachelor, graduate or doctoral education.
About Hawaii Pacific University:
Hawaii Pacific University is a private, nonprofit university on the Hawaiian island of O’ahu. The campuses in downtown Honolulu and at the foot of the Ko’olau Mountains on the windward side of the island enable students to enjoy the best of both worlds; a vibrant, international city and a stunningly-beautiful, tropical setting. And with students and faculty from around the world, it is one of the most culturally-rich, private universities in the U.S.
Fusing this unmatched cultural diversity with personal support and a deliberately intimate learning environment, HPU enables students to get up-close and personal with the subjects they’re most passionate about. And when they do, when they look closer, they are empowered to see further and to do more. It’s how the institution ensures its graduates enter a competitive global workplace market-ready.
