Hawai'i Hall is a prominent building of the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa campus.
The University of Hawai'i at Mānoa is a public, co-educational university and is the main campus of the greater University of Hawai'i System. The school is located in Mānoa, an urban neighborhood community of Honolulu, approximately three miles east and inland from downtown Honolulu and one mile from Ala Moana and Waikīkī. The campus occupies the eastern half of the mouth of the greater Mānoa Valley. It is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and is governed by the Hawai'i State Legislature and a semi-autonomous Board of Regents, which in turn hires a president to be administrator.
The University of Hawai'i at Mānoa was founded in 1907 as a land grant college of agriculture and mechanical arts. Today the primary school of the university is the College of Arts and Sciences, opened in 1920. The University of Hawai'i at Mānoa is also home to two of the most prominent professional schools in the state. The William S. Richardson School of Law and the John A. Burns School of Medicine are the only law and medical schools in Hawai'i, respectively.
All the colleges of the university offer bachelor degrees in eighty-seven fields of study, master degrees in eighty-seven fields, doctoral degrees in fifty-three fields, first professional degrees in three fields, post-baccalaureate degrees in three fields, twenty-nine undergraduate certification programs and twenty-six graduate certification programs. Total enrollment averages 19,863 students, 13,754 of which are undergraduates. There are fifteen students per instructor.
According to the 2003 report of the Institutional Research Office, a plurality of students at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa are Caucasian making up twenty-four percent of the student body. Japanese Americans represent twenty percent, Chinese Americans represent nine percent, Filipino Americans represent eight percent as do native Hawaiians. Ten percent of the student body are racially mixed. Smaller populations of Pacific Islanders and other ethnic groups make up the remainder.
The Stan Sheriff Center is the main basketball and volleyball venue for the Warriors and Wahine, and home of the Rainbow Classic premier basketball tournament. In 1997, it hosted the Miss Universe pageant.
The University of Hawai'i at Mānoa competes in the National Collegiate Athletics Association Division I, the only Hawai'i school to do so. In major sports, it competes in the Western Athletic Conference. Formerly known as the Rainbow Warriors and Rainbows, the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa athletics program began calling itself the Warriors (men) and Wahine (women) in 2000. The Warriors and Wahine are most notable for their highly-ranked men's and women's basketball, men's and women's volleyball, baseball and football programs. The principal sports venues for the Warriors are Aloha Stadium, Les Murakami Stadium, Neal S. Blaisdell Center and Stan Sheriff Center.
Several university presidents have gained national attention for their ambitious programs and past lives. One of the most notable was former United States Ambassador Evan Dobelle who served under President of the United States Jimmy Carter as chief of protocol. Dobelle served as university president from 2001 until his firing by the Board of Regents on June 15, 2004. A highly political person, he had often been considered a possible future contender for the United States Senate from Hawai'i.
