Hawaiian and Pacific Studies Mission Statement
The Hawaiian and Pacific Studies minor creates a learning environment that contextualizes major studies within the contemporary Hawaiian and Pacific Islander cultural, political, environmental values.
Courses in Hawaiian and Pacific Studies cover a wide range of disciplines and are designed to take advantage of Chaminade’s unique position located here in the middle of the Pacific by providing the student with a better understanding of this dynamic, diverse and increasingly influential region.
Individual course assessment tools assessing the program outcomes will be developed and implemented with aggregation of data across the minor program.
