NACADA 2015 Region 9 Conference  
Mission Statement

In Hawaiʻi, we use the word “aloha” in many ways as simple greetings, farewells, and expressions of love.  However, the word “aloha” has more meaning; it is our way of life and it holds within itself all one needs to know to interact with others. The following are different ways we communicate “aloha” to our students and fellow colleagues in academic advising.

AAla – to rise up, arise, get up, come forward

LLōkahi – working with unity, harmony

OʻOiaʻiʻo – truthful honesty, genuine

H Haʻahaʻa – humility, humble, modest

AAhonui – patient

To begin, we want our students to come in for academic advising and to develop during their undergraduate experience (Ala).

In academic advising, we need to network and collaborate effectively with students and colleagues from this state, others states, and around the globe (Lōkahi).

When we advise students, we set achievable goals and reach responsible decisions while being authentic as we communicate (ʻOiaʻiʻo).

As we relate to students and colleagues, we are respectful to each other (Haʻahaʻa).

And, as always, we are calm and understanding with students and others (Ahonui).
