University of Hawaiʻi President Evan S. Dobelle will deliver an address on the connection between universities and communities at a free public program Thursday, November 8, at 4:30 p.m., at the School of Architecture Auditorium on the UH Manoa campus. Dobelle will focus on his experience as president of Trinity College and the college‘s relationship with the community of Hartford, Connecticut. Following the address, a panel of planning professionals from private firms, the City and County of Honolulu, the state and the University of Hawaiʻi will discuss the ideas and how they might be applied to the Manoa campus and surrounding community.

The program has been scheduled to celebrate World Town Planning Day and is also part of the UH strategic planning process. It is sponsored by the UH Manoa Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, the UHM Department of Urban and Regional Planning, Manoa Faculty Senate, Graduate Student Organization, and the Hawaiʻi Chapter of the American Planning Association. World Planning Day promotes broad-based awareness, support and advocacy of community and regional planning among the general public and all levels of government through local, state and national activities.

The event is free and open to the public. Limited parking is available adjacent to the School of Architecture for a $3 charge along with limited metered parking on University Avenue. For more information or for disability accommodations, please call 956-6145.
