This message was shared with the students, faculty, and staff of the 10-campus University of Hawaiʻi system on March 12, 2020.
Thanks to all of you who have shared questions and provided input over these last days. This has been a tumultuous week, with many changes in the COVID-19 situation in Hawaiʻi, across higher education and globally, accelerating into today.
Follow-up message: University of Hawaiʻi actions to address COVID-19 pandemic
I will send a longer message later today with more details. But at this point, I want to let you know that, out of concern for the safety of our students, faculty and staff, the University of Hawaiʻi will be moving our classes online after spring break, effective Monday, March 23. Other changes will also be announced.
Please stay tuned for more details.
