“Kīpaipai” means to inspire; which gives our lecture series its name. The Kapiʻolani Community College Kīpaipai Career and Transfer Series will encompass Native Hawaiian professionals with a knowledge of History, Communications, Political Science, and Cultural Research. Their expertise and knowledge will inspire students to believe in their academic journey and become the leading professionals in Hawaiʻi’s workforce. Na ka Hawaiʻi, no ka Hawaiʻi. By Hawaiʻi, for Hawaiʻi.
