|Mission: Military Campus Programs seeks to provide
an effective and challenging education for all military service
members, their families, and U.S. Government civilian personnel.
We recognize their need for flexibility without sacrificing academic
integrity in educational programs. We strive to maximize the
potential for distance education as an alternative delivery mode
to educate our students in an ever-changing global environment.
Vision: The vision of Military Campus Programs is to be a world
leader in providing flexible and academically superior undergraduate
education to the military community as its members serve at home
Again this year, we honor our military through sponsorship of
the Hawai‘i Military Appreciation Month Opening Ceremony
on April 27 at the USS Battleship Missouri Memorial on Ford Island.
HPU and affiliate Oceanic Institute staff and faculty, our International
Vocal Ensemble, and several President’s Host members will
join to kick off one month of remembrances and festivities on
O‘ahu designed to recognize the invaluable contributions
our service men and women, and their families, make to our state
and in protecting our nation’s freedom
Since the 1970s, HPU has provided a flexible learning environment
for this group of busy men and women. More than 2,500 of our
students are military personnel, their spouses, or Department
of Defense civilians who work full time or balance other responsibilities
while seeking a quality education. Our military campuses—located
at Marine Corps Base Hawai‘i, Kane‘ohe Bay, Camp
H.M. Smith, Schofield Barracks, Tripler Army Medical Center,
Pearl Harbor Naval Station, and Hickam Air Force Base—as
well as our military campus online program all assist America’s
military family reach their educational goals.
As military personnel on O‘ahu prepare to deploy to continue
the fight against terrorism or respond on short notice to provide
humanitarian assistance to our global citizens as a result of
natural disasters, HPU has responded to meet their educational
needs. We continue to expand our online course offerings to enable
our service members to take classes wherever they are stationed
on the globe and on a schedule that fits with the conflicting
demands of their daily lives.
HPU recognizes the importance education contributes toward building
and maintaining the best informed and most effective military
in the world. We are proud to partner with Department of Defense
off-duty voluntary education programs to help prepare the future
leaders of our country.
