Every year, the UH Office of Sustainability identifies a common focus around which UH communities are encouraged to structure class assignments and projects, as well as campus events and education.


The theme for this academic year is WATER.

In May 2017, SENCER (Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities) held a Professional Development Institute focused on this topic. 

As members of our ‘ohana we encourage you to think about ways to further your knowledge and awareness of this critical topic whether it be on our campus or in the community.

Here are some ideas that members of the UH ʻOhana are planning on participating in MM1U.  Assistant Geology Professor John Delay is featured in this informational video talking about the meteorological weather station that is being erected at the campus’s dry land mala to calculate water levels.  This is just one example of the great work our faculty are doing to make this topic come alive for students.

We hope that you will make new discoveries with us!  Resources are available to help you learn more about this topic and sustainability on our campus.
