Defining Our Destiny
“Planning is all about hope.” This strategic plan represents the hopes and dreams of many of us at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa who have come forward to express the ideas about making our institution a more vibrant, engaged, and connected place to study, work, and interact. In addition to articulating our mission, this plan also contains our vision statement, our core commitments, and our strategic imperatives that we believe will help to transform our campus. We have also included a set of key benchmark indicators of success to measure progress towards achievement of our destiny. Unless otherwise noted, we hope to achieve them by 2010. Our planning effort is part of a larger systemwide process involving all ten campuses of the University of Hawai‘i. This plan was approved by the Board of Regents on November 22, 2002.
