Personal interaction between faculty and students is another hallmark of BYU–Hawaii. With a low student/faculty ratio, students have great opportunities to learn and grow from their professors. Faculty members are committed to knowing their students personally, spending time with them beyond regular classroom hours, and becoming their mentors. Countless alumni have attributed life-changing moments to individual professors who have had the insight and concern to make a difference when it is most needed. Professors see their role as much more than teaching courses—they are developing and guiding the world’s next generation of leaders.
