For Immediate Release

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo has once again been selected as one of the 2021 Most Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs by ACPA-College Student Educators International (ACPA) and Diverse: Issues In Higher Education. The announcement was made earlier this month recognizing UH Hilo and 29 other schools nationwide. UH Hilo first received this honor in 2019.

Most Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs is a national recognition that celebrates student affairs workplaces that are vibrant, diverse, supportive and committed to staff work-life balance, professional development and inclusive excellence.

“Thank you to the ACPA-College Student Educators International and Diverse: Issues In Higher Education for recognizing UH Hilo with this honor again this year,” said Vice Chancellor for Students Affairs Farrah-Marie Gomes. “Now more than ever, the work of student affairs professionals is critical for providing the holistic support that students need to be successful in college.

“I am proud of our student affairs professionals for serving students in exceptional ways,” she added. “These are the same professionals that contribute to the building of a welcoming, safe and inclusive foundation upon which students and staff will continue to thrive in. I have profound gratitude for all of our student affairs professionals who exude compassion and grace for our students while also demonstrating care for one another. There is no other group of professionals that I would choose to do this important work with.”
