Leeward Community College, also known as Leeward CC, is a public community college located in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. It is one of the ten branches of the University of Hawaii system, anchored by the University of Hawaii at Mānoa in Honolulu. Leeward CC was founded in 1968 as the first community college in the UH system to be developed without an association to a pre-existing technical school. The institute’s main mission is to provide affordable and quality education. The 49-acre campus also houses the provisional campus of the University of Hawaii-West Oahu.
