The University of Hawai'i Maui College (UHMC) is a public, co-educational commuter college in Kahului, Hawaiʻi on the island of Maui. It is one of ten branches of the University of Hawaiʻi system anchored by the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa in Honolulu and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
In addition to its main campus in Kahului, UHMC also runs four education centers within Maui County: Lahaina Education Center in Lahaina and Hāna Education Center in Hāna; Molokai Education Center on the island of Molokaʻi; and Lānai Education Center on the island of Lānaʻi.
The University of Hawaiʻi, Maui College was founded in 1931 as the Maui Vocational School. In 1958 its name was changed to Maui Technical School. The college was incorporated into the University of Hawaiʻi System on July 1, 1965 after the Hawaiʻi State Legislature enacted the Community College Act which established a statewide community college system under the UH System.
In 1966 its name was changed to Maui Community College after the UH Board of Regents authorized the college to confer degrees in Associates in Arts and Associates in Science.
In Spring of 2010, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Accreditation Board approved the name change from Maui Community College to University of Hawaiʻi Maui College. The name change was changed in order to provide a more accurate reflection of UH Maui College's three baccalaureate degrees.
