  • Plant a Seed for the Future with CTAHR

College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources


UH Mānoa’s College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) prepares students and all citizens of Hawai‘i for life in the global community through research and educational programs supporting tropical agricultural systems that foster viable communities, a diversified economy, and a healthy environment.

CTAHR is reaching new heights in education and leading the way in research and extension by providing solutions to many of the challenges that face Hawaiʻi, our nation, and the world.

How you can help

We invite you to partner with us to make these CTAHR initiatives a reality:

  • imgIndigenous Science Center – A special place that will provide UH Mānoa students the support, pathway and space for sharing and building upon their indigenous scientific knowledge.
  • Children’s Healthy Living Program, which will strengthen our ongoing work to improve nutrition & physical activity of underserved children in Hawai‘i and across the Pacific by enhancing successful social, cultural, economic, political and physical aspects of communities to promote and sustain well-being.
  • Historic Costume Museum, which will support and help maintain one of the largest collections of garments, textiles, and related artifacts in any American university. It is a valuable asset for instruction, research, and outreach programs consisting of four sub-collections: Asian, Hawaiian, Ethnic and Western. The Hawaiian sub-collection, with 1,300 items, is the only existing collection of its kind in the United States.
  • Support the education of students, particularly through our Centennial Scholarship, which provides funding to those who are the first in their family to attend college. Help our next generation continue to thrive and give back to Hawaiʻi. 

For CTAHR, it is about benefitting people, protecting our place, and fulfilling a promise for a better tomorrow.
