Campaign supports UH students and COVID-19 research

Thank you to all who have made a contribution to UH students and research!

"As we adjust to a new reality amid concerns about the novel coronavirus, friends and alumni have been asking us how they can help. Many of our funders and donors have reached out expressing concern for the welfare of our students. They also want to hear what UH is doing on the research front to participate in the fight against COVID-19."

- David Lassner, University of Hawai‘i President

UH has set up two new funds to support crucial areas, for urgent student relief and  COVID-19 and infectious and emerging diseases research.
