"UH has two vital roles in the economic development and diversification of Hawaiʻi. We must bring our expertise to bear on the challenges associated with the necessary shifts in our economy, while at the same time developing and providing the suite of educational offerings that prepare learners of all ages and backgrounds to lead and participate in each sector. The following clusters frame a relatively tight set of economic and workforce sectors for priority and investment. By looking simultaneously inward and outward, these clusters can balance internal needs, environmental sensitivity and opportunities for strengthening our traded economy to lessen our dependence on tourism.

• Computer Science & Engineering including
o Data science and artificial intelligence / machine learning
o Cybersecurity
o Creative Media Industries
• Food, Agriculture and Aquaculture
• Climate Change, Resilience, Energy and Conservation (“green jobs”)
• Sustainable Tourism"
