Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Farrah-Marie Gomes: Let’s do our part by being supportive of students who may need assistance in coping with this natural disaster.
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Farrah-Marie Gomes sent out an email this afternoon to the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo community regarding Hurricane Harvey:
Aloha UH Hilo ‘Ohana,
Among our student population this semester are several students from Texas and many other students who have family or friends from the Lone Star state. As Texas residents deal with Hurricane Harvey, I encourage us to do our part by being supportive of students who may need assistance in coping with this natural disaster.
Housing, New Student Programs, and Pharmacy have made contact with almost all of our registered students with a permanent address in Texas. If you encounter a student in need of support to cope with Hurricane Harvey or any other situation, please feel free to reach out or make referrals to the available campus services below:
For extremely urgent situations or after hour calls, the Crisis Line of Hawai‘i is available at 1-800-753-6879.
Mahalo for continued care and concern for our students.
