Introduction
History and Organization of the Institution
Kaua‘i Community College (KCC) is one of seven community colleges in the University of Hawai‘i System. It is a comprehensive community college which provides access to two-year associate-level terminal and transfer degrees, as well as certificate and non-credit training programs that enable the college to respond flexibly and quickly to changing workforce needs. Shorter term certificates as well as non-credit training enable the college to respond flexibly and quickly to the changing needs of the workforce.
Established in 1928 as a vocational school, it was part of the state Department of Education. In 1965, it became a comprehensive community college and was transferred to the University of Hawai‘i System as part of the UH Community College System. It is the only public institution of higher education serving the county of Kaua‘i, which includes the islands of Kaua‘i and Ni‘ihau.
The college awards the following degrees and certificates:


  • Associate of Arts (AA) in Liberal Arts







  • Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in

    • Accounting

    • Office Administration and Technology

    • Visitor Industry--Culinary Arts and Hospitality Services

    • Autobody Repair and Painting

    • Automotive Mechanics Technology

    • Electronics Technology

Certificate of Achievement (CA) in



    • Nursing

    • Early Childhood Education

    • Accounting

    • Office Administration and Technology

    • Visitor Industry--Culinary Arts and Hospitality Services

    • Autobody Repair and Painting

    • Automotive Mechanics Technology

    • Electronics Technology

    • Facilities Engineering

Certificates of Completion and Competence are also awarded in most of the above areas and an Academic Subject Certificate in Hawaiian Studies is available to complement the AA degree. The Certificate of Competence has been the most active area of curriculum development in the past five years. Certificates in Medical Office Receptionist, Hawaiian Botany, Polynesian Voyaging, Auto Body Repair and Painting, Electronics, Cashiering, and Culinary Arts have been added.


Currently, degrees previously offered in Carpentry and Electrical Installation have been stopped out and the division is reviewing the programs.
In 1996, Kaua‘i Community College took on the responsibilities of a University Center, in response to the growing need for baccalaureate and graduate level education in the community. The University of Hawai‘i System established three such centers, one on Kaua‘i, one on Maui and one in West Hawai‘i. As a University Center, the college can broaden the educational opportunities of island-bound residents by supporting baccalaureate and graduate programs from sister campuses. Distance learning technology, including two-way video and audio and online classes, greatly extends the reach of higher education for the island. The college provides access to this technology and also provides facilities and academic support for on-site faculty from UH Mānoa and Kapi‘olani Community College and visiting faculty from other campuses as needed. Ascertaining and assessing community needs is among the most important responsibilities of the University Center.
The college is presently organized into four units, headed by a dean or director, who reports to the chancellor. Instruction, led by the Dean of Instruction, is made up of six divisions:



  • Language Arts and Humanities

  • Science and Math

  • Health Education

  • Business Education

  • Trades and Technology

  • Academic Support and University Center

Student Services is led by the Dean of Student Services and includes




  • Admission and Records

  • Academic Advising

  • Financial Aid

  • Special Student Services

The Office of Continuing Education and Training, headed by a director, is responsible for non-credit, customized training and the operation of the Performing Arts Center. Administration and facilities are coordinated by the Director for Administrative Services. Institutional Research also reports directly to the chancellor.


The chancellor reports to both the President of the University of Hawai‘i System and the Vice President for Community Colleges. The chancellor is a member of both the Council of Chancellors and the Council of Community College Chancellors.
