Wildfires delay start of University of Hawaiʻi Maui College fall semester
The start of the fall semester at the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College will be delayed a week because of the devastating impact of the deadly wildfires on the Valley Isle.
The semester will now begin Aug. 28. It was scheduled to begin Aug. 21.
“We send our deepest aloha to all of you and your ʻohana who have been impacted by the tragic Maui wildfires last week,” said UH-Maui College Chancellor Lui Hokoana. “We understand that we are all working to address the impacts on our lives, including the loss of life and home and the emotional and financial stress that ensues.”
Resources and special funding are available for UH-Maui College students from the hard hit areas of West Maui and Kula. Students from those areas are asked to notify the campus about how they have been impacted. They can call the campus at 808-984-3700 or fill out a quick online survey.
