The University of Hawaiʻi Alumni Association has expanded membership levels to three with the addition of a free, basic membership level.
“As part of our mission to keep alumni connected with the university and with each other, we want to be more inclusive,” says Douglas Inouye ’85, ’03, president of the UHAA board of directors. “Adding a free membership level allows us to do that, and dramatically expands our ranks.”
All alumni of any of the 10 University of Hawaiʻi System campuses—more than 220,000 living graduates—are eligible for basic membership.
Paid Haʻaheo and ʻOnipaʻa members will continue to receive premium benefits, such as membership in its constituent chapters and discounts on UH Athletics events, travel, dining, special events and more.
“We realize the profound importance of keeping alumni engaged with the UH System,” Inouye says. “As an organization of alumni, by alumni, for alumni, we take this responsibility very seriously and hope this change will help to increase alumni involvement on many levels.”
