School Information
Brigham Young University Hawaii is a small, academically challenging university (approximately 2400 students) emphasizing the liberal arts together with professional programs in business, education and computer technologies. The University services an international student body: Approximately 50 percent of the students come from over 70 countries outside the United States, primarily from Asia and the Pacific. BYU-Hawaii is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
General Information
Brigham Young University Hawaii offers two optional classes focused on race and anti-racism. The university's student newspaper published two articles highlighting racist incidents and promoting conversations on race. There is no evidence BYUH requires any critical race theory-related training of its students or faculty.


  • Curriculum Changes and Requirements

    On August 6, 2020, BYUH Academic Advising announced plans for a 1-credit class on "anti-racism" taught by Dr. David Beus, an associate professor in the Faculty of Culture, Language, and Performing Arts. This course is not required.
