March 23 Message from VCAA Joni Onishi

Aloha Esteemed Faculty and Lecturers,

I hope all of you are doing well and are ready to deploy your courses via distance learning. Spend this week reacquainting with your students and acquainting your students and yourself to the different modality of delivery. Please let your DC, Dean, or me know if there's anything you and/or your students need. We have resource people available to assist.

Aloha Faculty and Lecturers,

UH and Hawai`i CC are committed to completing the academic semester and enabling students to graduate on schedule. Hawai`i CC is transitioning to deliver most of its classes via distance education, either online or via Zoom/Real Presence/Google Meet to lessen the risk of our faculty, staff, and students contracting COVID-19.
