The new Academy of Creative Media facility at UH West Oʻahu is ready for debut. The state-of-the-art building will link creative media programs for students throughout the UH system and provide a high-tech training hub for high-demand careers in creative media like video, animation, design, and web and app development. “Creative media” is the fastest growing major on campus, with Native Hawaiians making up 28% of the student body in the ACM program.
