Alisi Langi

Assistant Professor
Faculty of Religious Education

‘Alisi K. Langi grew up running the streets of Laie and the halls of BYU-Hawaii. As a high school student, she spent many hours at the BYUH library “studying”! Both of her parents, Samuela Langi and Dorian Thoene Langi, are Church College of Hawaii alumni, and 4 of their 7 children have also graduated from BYUH.

After graduating from Kahuku High School, Alisi earned her Bachelor degree in Political Science from BYUH, a Master degree in Public Administration from the Romney Institute of Public Management - Marriott School of Management (BYU), and a Juris Doctorate from the J. Reuben Clark Law School (BYU).

Alisi has worked and/or volunteered in both the private and public sectors including: education (early childhood, elementary, secondary, undergraduate, and graduate); local government administration; private law practice; judicial systems – domestic courts and juvenile detention; non-profit and more. By far, her two favorite responsibilities have been as a primary caregiver to her father who suffered from dementia, and as a teacher in the local seminary program.

Alisi is excited to continue teaching in religious education and looks forward to contributing to the work and mission of BYU-Hawaii.
