This is the UH Hilo report. News about people, events and programs at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo.

The state legislature has approved funding for a building to house UH Hilo’s Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy. The appropriation agreed to by House and Senate lawmakers totals $33 million, including $28 million in General Obligation or G.O. bonds and $5 million in Revenue bonds.

Funding of the building, which will house teaching and research of importance to the whole state, will allow the college to move forward without jeopardizing accreditation.

The pharmacy college was established in 2007, awarded its first degrees in 2011, and will graduate its fourth class this month. A site has been selected for a permanent facility, which has already been planned and designed.
