The center collaborates with several community partners who share in our mission of bringing together people and resources to promote an understanding of the Pacific Islands and issues of concern to Pacific Islanders.
Our community partners include other academic institutions, nonprofit organizations, and organizers of annual community events. Community partners are based in Hawai‘i, the continental United States, and throughout Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. Partnering with local, national, and international organizations allows the center and its partners to leverage our collective resources, talents, and passions toward serving Pacific Islander communities.
