Windward Community College is a public community college in Kāneʻohe, Hawaiʻi. It is part of the University of Hawaiʻi system and is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges. Created in 1972, Windward Community College primarily serves the windward Oahu region, offering college courses, non-credit classes, and community activities including an annual Hoʻolauleʻa, typically held in September or October. Windward CC's strengths are in Hawaiian studies, natural sciences, fine arts, veterinary technology, and vocational training. Most of the college's students are from the windward side of Oʻahu and transfer to 4-year colleges, including the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa and Hawaii Pacific University. Key facilities include Pāliku Theatre, Hōkūlani Imaginarium (a full-dome planetarium), Aerospace Exploration Lab (a hands-on physical science exploratorium), Lanihuli Observatory, Gallery ʻIolani (an art gallery), and a Library Learning Commons that opened in 2012.


The campus features the 1998 granite and cast stone sculpture Kulia I Ka Nuʻu (Striving for the Summit) by Donald Harvey.
