FRAMEWORK FOR THE FUTURE

Guiding Hawaii’s flagship campus as a dynamic resource

MKThink developed the Framework for the Future for the University of Hawai‘i Mānoa—a set of principles, metrics, and guidelines to promote a sustainable physical campus which aligns with the university’s strategies and priorities over the next 40 years. The Framework provides the foundation for aligning campus transformation with the 100-year old university’s goals: becoming a Native Hawaiian Place of Learning; enhancing student success; excellence in research; and building a sustainable and resilient campus environment. MKThink also works with the University of Hawai’i on specific capital improvement projects designed to fulfill the goals of the Framework, and supports planning efforts across the entire 10-campus University of Hawai’i system.
