Ellis on HPU: A personal perspective

by Kalamalama staff

 

Kalamalama asked Vice President Nancy Ellis to summarize her views of how HPU has progressed during her years at the University. Here are some of her perceptions:

 

“The growth and expansion of HPU over the last 23 years has been so dramatic and dynamic it is difficult to describe.

“ We have almost 10 times the enrollment now as in the early ‘80s.

“ The undergraduate academic programs have grown from about 12 to more than 50.

“ In 1985, we launched the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree, and today we have 12 masters’ degree programs.

“ In 1990, Hawai‘i Pacific College became Hawai‘i Pacific University, in recognition of its growth and development of the institution.

“ In 1992, Hawai‘i Loa College, a small, independent, liberal arts college, merged with Hawai‘i Pacific University.

“ And in 2003, the Oceanic Institute, a scientific research organization, became affiliated with HPU.

“ We are now a highly complex, sophisticated learning institution. HPU has become an internationally respected institution that plays and will continue to play a significant role in higher education in the Pacific region. Our progress has been phenomenal.”

And her last words: “It has been enormously satisfying and gratifying to have been a part of the growth and success of HPU.”
