HONOLULU — More Native Hawaiians are going to college and staying long enough to get their degrees, according to new data from the University of Hawai‘i.

The number of Native Hawaiians earning either an undergraduate or graduate degree within the UH System increased nearly 22 percent between 2009 and 2010, outstripping UH’s annual goal of 6- to 9-percent growth. By comparison, the rate at which all UH students earn their degrees has risen 2.6 percent since 2009, just shy of the 3- to 6-percent goal.
