Community Service

Community service provides students an opportunity to apply academic learning to real human needs and to make the knowledge gained usable in one’s thinking beyond the situation in which the learning occurred. Knowing that one’s actions benefit others is a good motivation for many students to go out of their way to give back to one’s community. Students who participate in community service projects experience a heightened sense of self-efficacy because they realize that they too can impact real social challenges, problems, and needs.

This semester we will be participating in community service events ranging from distributing runner packets for the Great Aloha Run, Relay for Life, a beach cleanup, and the Kau Kau Wagon. In addition, we will participate in joint community service events with business professionals from Servco Pacific Inc. and First Hawaiian Bank.
