University of Hawaiʻi President David Lassner delivered his monthly report to the Board of Regents on January 20. Lassner began with a message of compassion for Tonga and everyone in the UH ʻohana impacted by the recent volcanic eruption.

He then updated UH’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic including in-person instruction resuming January 31, the return to in-person graduation ceremonies and the invaluable impact of COVID-19 federal aid.
