HELP Symposium

Location: UH Hilo, Campus Center 307

The Spring HELP Symposium will be held on Friday, May 2 at Campus Center 301, UH Hilo.

The biannual HELP Symposium is designed to bring awareness to the needs of the Pacific Island communities and the efforts of Pacific Islander college students to engage in community-based projects that impact their education and help their community. The Highly Engaged Learning Placement (HELP) program is part of the high impact student employment initiative at the Pacific Islander Student Center (PISC) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo.

PISC has invited undergraduate students from UH Mānoa’s Center for Pacific Islands Studies to present research on community-based projects that they have completed as part of the BA capstone project. These graduating students will discuss projects such as ways that voyaging has strengthened Pacific communities in Oʻahu, how teens contribute to family finances with after-school jobs, healthcare for migrants in Hawaiʻi, coupon-ing to save on household expenses, and several other projects on health, environment, and culture. The full program including times and a description of presentations is available at help.pacificstudents.org/symposium/.

The symposium also features a special lunchtime keynote presentation “Pacific Islander Students Navigating Success at UH Hilo” by Dr. Denise Uehara. Dr. Uehara, Assistant Professor in the College of Education at UH Mānoa, will highlight about the preliminary findings from research on Pacific Islander students at UH Hilo.

The Spring HELP Symposium is sponsored by UH Hilo’s Pacific Islander Student and Pacific Islands Studies Certificate, and UH Mānoa’s Center for Pacific Islands Studies, Office for Student Equity, Excellence and Diversity (SEED), and Friends of Operation Manong.

The public can register for free at help.pacificstudents.org/registration/. Please register early to receive a complimentary parking pass.
