The Associated Students of the University of Hawai‘i (ASUH) has passed a resolution supporting sustainability education at UH Mānoa during their final general senate meeting for the semester.
In the resolution, the ASUH calls for the creation of certificate and degree programs in sustainability studies at UH Mānoa. It also supports the creation of a center for sustainable living on the UH Mānoa campus.
“The ASUH believes that students’ interest, intellectual development and real world training in the field of sustainability are not being realistically addressed financially by UH administrative bodies and the state of Hawai’i,” the resolution says.
The ASUH will also be involved in discussions regarding a possible merger between the College of Arts and Humanities and the College of Languages, Linguistics and Literature.
The student senate discussed their end-of-semester “Sinclair Study Nights” events during finals week, which provide students studying late at Sinclair Library with snacks and drinks.
Senators Gabriel Candelario and Kyle Samiano celebrated their last general senate meeting as they will be graduating in the fall.
