Since its prophetic inception, the Brigham Young University–Hawai'i community has worked to fulfill its mandate–to produce peace-builders and leaders in a multicultural, Christ-centered environment. With such diversity, located in the historic pu'uhonua (place of refuge) of La'ie, BYU–Hawaii is a unique and sacred place of learning. As such, it is our kuleana (stewardship) as faculty, staff, and students to cultivate a healthy learning environment, one that encourages excellence, promotes respect and appreciation for cultural differences, and inspires a love for God and all people.
