Aloha. Welcome to the Akamai University!
Akamai is an international university operating at the frontier of higher learning. As a nonprofit non-governmental organization, we have dedicated our efforts toward the betterment of the human condition and sustainability of the planet. Together, we strive for a world filled with greater peace, balance, cooperation, and the promise of an evolved human fellowship.
These are noble foundation stones upon which to establish the fundamentals of sustainable human culture. They are spiritual principles that demand a worthy mission, and although the tasks and goals before us seem immense, we believe they are attainable with adequate understanding of the problems and solutions, and the full commitment and participation of the global community.
As educators, we are most comfortable with instructional techniques that empower our students to think beyond the confines of the classroom, building achievement and new learning fully engaged with their personal and professional lives. We respect each student as a unique individual, academically and professionally.
Freed from traditional residency requirements, they are able to pursue advanced study in a personalized and self-paced manner while maintaining full time employment and family responsibilities. We honor the life pursuits of our students, providing opportunities for integrating professional activities within their programs, assisting them in building a broader network of colleagues and providing the means for lifelong professional development.
Through affiliations with like-minded institutions, we have achieved recognition and friendship across the international community. With our colleagues and supporters we now operate an expanding number of community service ventures serving the human community. Since 2003, we have been privileged to award more than 500 scholarships providing full or partial support for our student's research and academic projects.
We encourage you to examine our website and explore the details of our programs and activities. We believe you will be pleased with the quality and sincerity of our efforts.
