We, the University of Hawai Ľi at Hilo Student Association (UHHSA), look to accurately represent the views of the entire student body. UHHSA is a chartered student organization (CSO) on the UH Hilo campus, funded by the student fees of all UH Hilo students (both in-person and distance learners).

We have been chartered by the Board of Regents and the Chancellor of the University, with the purpose to:

  1. Serve as a smooth, accountable, representative, and stable voice for all students.
  2. Improve education quality. Senate page.
  3. Provide a vehicle for student involvement, as well as ascertain students' needs and/or wants. Student Involvement page.
  4. Enrich student life through the development and implementation of co-curricular programs and events. Committees page.

We act as a liaison between the student body and the college administration through active collaboration with faculty, the University Board of Regents, the State Legislature, and campus student organizations.

We are currently working on

  • Advocacy (via collecting student feedback and ideas, as well as through our student survey.)
  • Developing and implementing various initiatives (i.e.: Feminine Hygiene Packages, Covered Bike Racks)

If you have any ideas or concerns or would like to get involved please feel free to email one of your senators or UHHSA at uhhsa@hawaii.edu. Mahalo!

You are also welcome to stop by and visit us at the UHHSA office at Campus Center room 203-A.

We make an effort to be available for our students. Our office hours are generally from 8AM-4PM Monday-Friday.
