HPU Names Maj. Gen. Logan as Senior Director of Military Affairs

HPU announced Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Arthur “Joe” Logan the University’s Senior Director of Military Affairs effective March 2022. Logan will serve as the chief liaison between HPU’s Military Campus Programs and the U.S. Military branches. Logan will build upon HPU’s existing strong relationships with the military community, representing the University through organizations supporting military affairs. He will provide insight and advice on how best to expand educational programming and services to meet the needs of a growing military community.  

Senior Vice President and Provost Jennifer Walsh, Ph.D., noted Logan’s 41 years of military service in Hawai‘i and abroad and strong ties to HPU as an alumnus and adjunct instructor of criminal justice and homeland security studies for the Military Campus programs will further strengthen the University’s commitment to providing educational opportunities for Armed Forces personnel and Veterans and their dependents and Department of Defense personnel.            

“HPU has a longstanding history with the military in Hawai‘i, offering its first courses on military installations 40 years ago and continuing today providing higher education at five military locations on Oahu,” Walsh added. “We are pleased General Logan has accepted his newest HPU role, helping us to serve best the educational needs and professional aspirations of military personnel.” 

Logan retired in December 2019 as the Adjutant General, State of Hawai‘i, Department of Defense. As Adjutant General, he oversaw the training and readiness of approximately 5,000 soldiers and airmen of the Hawai‘i Army and Air National Guard while also acting as the Governor’s Homeland Security Advisor. From 2007 to 2008, he was deployed to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom and served as Commander, Regional Police Advisory Command to the Afghan Central Region. He also concurrently served in the Honolulu Police Department from 1982 to 2002. Logan has received numerous awards and decorations, including the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star, and Meritorious Service Medal. 

“I look forward to collaborating with individuals within HPU and throughout the broader Hawai‘i and military communities to ensure HPU is the top private university of choice for Hawai‘i residents, military and their families, veterans, and international students across the globe,” Logan said. “My affiliation with HPU dates back to my late father Frank Logan, who served as an HPU administrator and faculty upon retiring from the U.S. Army. I am proud to continue my family’s connection to HPU.”   

Logan earned his bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice from Hawai‘i Pacific University in 1993, holds a master's degree in Strategic Studies from the U.S. Army War College, and is a graduate of Saint Louis School in Honolulu.
