Campus Center Mission & Philosophy
Campus Center Mission The UH Hilo Campus Center is a catalyst for leadership, social, cultural, educational and recreational development of the University's student population through co-curricular programs, activities and services. The Campus Center serves as a laboratory of citizenship by developing socially responsible leaders who become effective forces for change in our communities and a sense of responsibility for active citizenship to perpetuate our democratic society.
Campus Center Philosophy Learning is a lifelong adventure. The Campus Center’s programs and services focus on the learning that occurs beyond the classroom. Co-curricular learning is integral to our students’ total higher education experience. This experiential learning prepares our student for the transition toward independence and self-responsibility and to support their life and career changes. Campus Center’s programs and service provide hands-on opportunities to practice concepts and skills that complement and enhance their academic learning. Students are encouraged to seek a higher level of excellence than imagined in individual social competency as well as group effectiveness.
