Each year, UH Hilo provides assistance to students who are faced with some type of a personal emergency, but never before have we been hit by a crisis like COVID-19.
On Hawai‘i Island, 48 UH Hilo student pharmacists have been helping at vaccination sites in Hilo. Students also have been assisting on O‘ahu at vaccination events held at Leeward Community College and UH Mānoa.
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.
