Message from the University of Hawai‘i System Offices:
Aloha to all UH students, faculty and staff,
In light of recent federal efforts to revise regulations protecting students against sex discrimination, the University of Hawai‘i reaffirms its commitment to ensuring safe and respectful campus environments where everyone can strive toward their academic, career and personal goals. The issue of sex discrimination and gender-based violence is prevalent on college campuses nationwide, and UH is working to continue the progress already made toward addressing these issues on our campuses.
Students as well as our entire community have important roles to play by being aware of the issues, watching out for one another and reporting violations. Everyone is encouraged, if they have not already, to take the free, online Title IX training for students.
If you are a victim of intimate partner violence or any other type of sexual harassment or gender-based violence, please know that the following help is available, including on a confidential basis.
- UH HILO: Jennifer Stotter, Title IX Coordinator; Kalei Rapoza, Deputy Title IX Coordinator; Jenna Waipa, Lead Deputy Title IX Coordinator.
We have made significant strides in addressing these issues over the past several years, but our goal is campus life free of sexual harassment and gender-based violence and we have even more to do.
Please enjoy a safe and successful academic semester!
