A healthy university is one that embraces diverse subject matter, wide debate, and constructive argument. At UH Hilo, we respect the right of people to express themselves peacefully. Our respect and aloha for one another will guide us well as we move forward.

Later this week, we will join with Hawai‘i Community College to host a series of events designed to help us understand the varying perspectives and viewpoints about Maunakea (Mauna a Wākea). We believe it is important to provide opportunities for our students, faculty, staff and larger community to gather together and to learn from many sources.

To learn of upcoming events, as they are scheduled, you can follow the chancellors blog at http://hilo.hawaii.edu/blog/chancellor/ or UH Hilo Stories at http://hilo.hawaii.edu/news/stories/.

UH supports the TMT project because it contributes significantly to the university’s mission of advancing knowledge. With a primary mirror thirty meters in diameter, the TMT will have nine times the light collecting area of the largest telescopes now on Maunakea. It will be able to see much fainter and more distant objects than is possible with existing telescopes and to study them in greater detail. It will help to maintain Hawaiʻi’s worldwide leadership in astronomy.

The construction phase beginning on the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) project on Maunakea on Hawaiʻi Island has prompted protests and media coverage.
