Mana (a concept, drawn from the cultures of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia, describing a powerful, miraculous force) is a program that builds a community among Pacific Islander students that offers many support services toward academic goals. Mana is a program that provides students with a platform to higher education while offering academic support. Mana is a learning community in which students in the program take courses together that are linked to enhance students’ experiences and make connections between courses, instructors, and their classmates. All Mana students benefit from having designated academic and financial aid counselors, university visits, and other opportunities for student leadership.
