Aloha! Welcome to the Kapi`olani Community College Faculty Senate Homepage!

The Senate strongly believes in and practices shared governance and acknowledges the strength of the faculty voice and their collective wisdom in guiding the process. We honor those who came before us by continuing their principles of inclusivity and collaboration, and welcome our campus `ohana to share their voices. We can and we must work together to make our College – a place, a community that lives to proudly uphold Queen Kapi`olani’s motto, “Kulia I Ka Nu`u – Strive for the highest.” Please join us at our general meetings to share your mana`o – your insights, thoughts, and ideas.  Here is the meeting schedule for Spring 2017:
