This month, University of Hawaiʻi students across the state will take part in commencement ceremonies as they take that big step toward a brighter future for themselves and their families.
It’s a momentous year in their lives.
It’s a momentous year, too, for us at UHF. We’re engaging with you in person again at events such as our annual Heritage Society and scholarship luncheons and receptions. And we’re working on plans to launch the largest comprehensive campaign in the history of the University of Hawaiʻi.
Our mission is to connect your passions with the aspirations at the University of Hawaiʻi. But it’s so much more than that. Your support literally changes lives, from individual students like Ashley Blackstad to the breakthrough research that can impact humanity, such as the ocean drones collecting critical data to assess climate change. It’s what makes Hawaiʻi a better place for everyone.
