About the UH System News site

To bring you the latest news about the University of Hawaiʻi and its 10 campuses, External Affairs and University Relations is consolidating articles about UH people, programs and activities in one news source.

Our goal is to be timely, compelling (strong storytelling with photos and multimedia) and connected.
