Title: Producing the College District for the University of Hawaii at Manoa and the Moiliili Community
Authors: Yabiku, Jonathan

Abstract: This study will first explain the necessity of a college district and discuss why a university without one today may wish to explore the possibility of developing one. This will be followed by an investigation into the elements that contribute to a successful college district, followed by those that hinder the development of one. Finally, these positive and negative principles will be related to the University of Hawaiʻi at Mänoa (UHM) and the Möʻiliʻili community in Honolulu Hawaiʻi where there is no college district. The overall goal is to develop a new master plan for the UHM and Möʻiliʻili community to show case how a university can begin to analyze their own unique situation and attempt to formulate a plan to create their own college district. The principles contributing to the success of a college district found by this study are proximity, walkability, “main street” architecture, appeal, campus design, gathering places, mixed use, parking, on-campus attractions, university presence, and public streets. The factors that hinder the existence of a college district are transit barriers, zoning, surrounding conditions, geography, lack of transit, transit access, too urban, shopping centers, and strip malls. These factors often work against the existence of a college district. For the application to the UHM and Möʻiliʻili community, the specific challenges will be to increase the proximity and improve the physical connections between the UHM and Möʻiliʻili business districts. An essential component to the master plan will envision an appealing and revitalized Möʻiliʻili.
