Imiloa is a Hawaiian word that means “exploration driven by a sense of wonder and imagination”. Here in the College of Science and Mathematics, our work is driven by our commitment to exploration, educational excellence, equity, and the pursuit of knowledge in STEM. Our CSM faculty, staff and students are at the forefront of meeting technological challenges in a rapidly evolving world. Every day, research and instruction meet practical application in laboratories, centers and classrooms, as well as within local schools, where we help to make science and mathematics accessible to all students. As we begin our third year, we remain committed to boldly go, building and sustaining a supportive and inspiring educational environment, with passion and the spirit of imiloa.
