Our History

Message from the Campus Coordinator

Danny Wyatt, Wai‘anae Moku Coordinator

The Wai‘anae Moku campus staff & faculty work at “helping students every step of the way” towards fulfilling their goals. We offer face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses to meet the needs of our students. We have a testing center that proctors exams for Leeward CC students and other students in the UH system. To help our students succeed, we provide a multitude of resources such as take-home laptops, one-on-one tutoring, and library books. There are two academic programs that are only offered at the Wai‘anae Moku campus: Access to Education (ATE) and Going to Finish On-Time (G2FO). These programs cater to different target groups, however, the goal for both is the same and that is to help students be successful. You are welcome to visit our campus in Ma‘ili anytime. Mahalo!
