University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Graduate Student Organization
The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Graduate Student Organization’s kuleana is to serve, advocate for, and support graduate students at UH Mānoa; to foster community engagement; to facilitate positive change; and to encourage a Hawaiian place of learning.
The UH Mānoa GSO currently represents the academic interests of over 5,000 graduate students attending the flagship campus of the UH system.
We place a particular emphasis on fostering excellence in research at both the PhD and Master's levels. As such, we endeavor to facilitate research initiatives through our Grants & Awards program, as well as other funding and networking opportunities.
We also provide input on all issues affecting UH Mānoa graduate students. With representatives sitting on over 40 university committees, and sustained participation in a wide variety of graduate student, campus, and community events, we strive to provide students with a supportive academic environment.
