Honoring Senator Daniel K. Inouye

The Board of Regents today approved our proposed tribute to the late Senator Daniel Inouye. The plan calls for the naming of four programs or facilities in honor of Senator Inouye. They include The Daniel K. Inouye Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Education (C-MORE) at the UH Mānoa, The Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, The Daniel K. Inouye Allied Health Center at UH Maui College and The Daniel K. Inouye Electronics Technology Building at Kauaʻi Community College.

We are elated. Senator Inouye’s family will accept our tribute during a brief ceremony at UH Mānoa’s C-MORE Hale tomorrow, February 22, at 11 a.m.
