The University of Hawaiʻi is privileged to be responsible for the stewardship of significant lands on Maunakea and for providing a thoughtful approach to astronomy research on the mauna.
The 60,000-square-foot Integrated Research Center will bring together staff from both the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory and the Pacific Islands Ecosystems Research Center to study hazards from active volcanoes and earthquakes in Hawai’i.
Everyone is encouraged to act in a safe and responsible manner while on Maunakea and look out and care for others because of the dangerous conditions.
Students helped at Hawai‘i Department of Health-coordinated vaccination sites over winter break, and many continue to volunteer during spring rotation blocks this semester.
Keep up the good work protecting yourself and our UH Hilo ‘ohana from Covid-19. Here is some info about safety and services on campus this semester.
