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

The Senate’s role is to ensure faculty governance. We aim to do this by honoring those who came before us, and continuing their principles of inclusivity and collaboration throughout the process. We welcome our campus `ohana to share their voices so that we can all work together to make our campus – 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 (see calendar) to share your mana`o – your insights, thoughts, and ideas.

The Senate commits to representing the Queen by ensuring that our words and actions are pono (goodness, fair, just) and transparent, and carried out with integrity and respect. We promise to listen and make decisions and recommendations that will enhance and advance our campus community.

The Senate consists of 16 senators, elected to represent the voices and perspectives of their departments/programs/units. If you have any relevant concerns, issues, or requests, please contact your Senator today. Or, please feel free to email us at kapccfs@hawaii.edu.
