UH Maui College Chancellor Clyde Sakamoto was my host as I visited UH Maui College. I met with vice chancellors and directors to discuss our strategic objectives. I also had a chance to visit “Taste of the Islands” which was on campus at the Pāʻina Cafeteria. There were some beautiful, locally grown foods on display, the best in the islands.
Community leaders and members of the Chancellor’s Advisory Council briefed me on Maui issues before I met with faculty and staff for a question and answer forum. We had a good discussion around incorporating emerging technology into the curriculum and I also learned more about the Maui Electrical Vehicle Alliance. Did you know UH Maui College is the only university to receive one of 16 grants from the U.S. Department of Energy? The grants help the island and the campus prepare for the future of electric vehicles. Bravo to our faculty and students from the Valley Isle for representing us so well in the constant search for resources to further our mission.
Thanks to Chancellor Sakamoto and UH Maui College for your efforts and progress.
