U H magazine cover, diver by reef

The University of Hawaiʻi’s leadership in ocean conservation stretches across the island chain, from Kauaʻi to Hawaiʻi Island, where UH Hilo’s marine science department is working with the community on solutions to improve ocean quality.

The story is featured on the cover of the summer 2022 issue of the University of Hawaiʻi alumni and friends magazine, which also contains these stories:

  • How students at the William S. Richardson School of Law’s Ka Huli Ao Center for Excellence in Native Hawaiian Law helped farmers on Kauaʻi secure water rights to grow kalo.
  • How Keola Donaghy, an assistant professor of music at UH Maui College, created a Hawaiian Wordle game.
  • Why Zachary and Courtney Villanueva of Sage Creamery believe their time at UH put them on a path to entrepreneurship and where they plan to open their first brick-and-mortar ice cream shop.
  • How faculty, students and alumni of the UH Mānoa College of Education adapted over the past two years to transform their work for Hawaiʻi’s next generation of teachers and learners. “For my entire professional career, I was a face-to-face instructor,” says Associate Professor Hannah Tavares. “… The pandemic changed all of that.”
  • Where former Rainbow Wāhine volleyball standout Clare-Marie Anderson is taking her career after graduating this spring from UH Mānoa John A. Burns School of Medicine.
  • What Nyle Sky Kauweloa is doing to grow the Esports program at UH Mānoa.

The annual University of Hawaiʻi Magazine, published by Pacific Basin Communications in partnership with the UH Foundation, highlights alumni accomplishments and news from UH’s 10 campuses.
