In the face of adversity, the true test of a community is always revealed. The resilience of our UH ‘ohana and Maui College has been stretched and frayed, but its real strength is the faith our residents will always have in each other.
The outpouring of support from both near and far is a reminder of how integral UH is to our island communities. We’ve set up a page on our website where people can support UH students and faculty impacted by the fires at uhfoundation.org/helpmaui.
Meanwhile, students are back at our other nine UH campuses, and at UH Mānoa, RISE opened with brand-new student housing and an innovation and entrepreneurship center – one of only a handful like it in the U.S.
We’re grateful every day for the commitment you make to our state university and to the students whose lives are forever changed by the opportunities you make possible.
