    Student Diversity

    Chaminade is a meeting place, a gathering together of many cultural traditions under one academic roof. Chaminade University is one of the most diverse colleges in the U.S., and provides a model of multi-cultural interaction and understanding. The greater community of Honolulu in which we are located provides another dimension of cultural awareness, as so many cultures co-exist and mutually benefit from one another in this cosmopolitan city.

    Students from the mainland US can experience a sense that they are “somewhere else,” and yet they are still going to school in one of the 50 states. Our international students will find a welcome here in Honolulu, Hawaii, a truly international city with a gracious host culture and immigrants from many areas of the globe. Local students can participate in a wealth of opportunities to discover the world beyond Hawaii, through Chaminade’s network with other institutions of higher learning.
