In light of COVID-19, University of Hawai'i President David Lassner announced this morning that all campuses will move classes online after spring break on March 23. 

Other changes will be announced later today.

Lassner released this statement: 

Thanks to all of you who have shared questions and provided input over these last days. This has been a tumultuous week, with many changes in the COVID 19 situation in Hawaii, across higher education and globally, accelerating into today.

I will send a longer message later today with more details. But at this point, I want to let you know that, out of concern for the safety of our students, faculty and staff, the University of Hawaii will be moving our classes online after spring break, effective Monday, March 23. Other changes will also be announced.

Please stay tuned for more details.
