UH Hilo ‘Ohana:
Donald Straney, University of Hawai‘i Vice President for Academic Planning and Policy, has provided a memorandum on Guidance on Instructional Activities Associated With Pu‘uhuluhulu.
August 7, 2019
TO: Members of the UH Faculty and Staff
FROM: Donald 0. Straney, PhD, Vice President for Academic Planning and Policy, UH System
SUBJECT: Guidance on Instructional Activities Associated With Pu‘uhuluhulu
There is a list of courses that faculty are offering for students to take remotely while staying in the Pu‘uhuluhulu region of Hawai‘i Island. The list is primarily built around already existing on-line or independent study options. However, there are also some face-to-face courses listed.
We appreciate faculty support for students who are participating in this important moment in history, and that the learning opportunities presented by the list will in many cases literally bring the course material to life. We know that faculty members who have offered their courses to students who wish to remain away from campus are doing so with respect to the policies and procedures of their campus.
We offer the following guidance to clear up any misconceptions, note current policies that may be applicable, and to make sure we are all aligned in how best to proceed.
