With regrets, we announce that the 8th annual Center for Pacific Islands Studies student conference has been cancelled. As two COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Hawaiʻi and as the situation continues to evolve, the Center has decided to cancel all large gatherings. Our decision is informed by the university’s advice: “All members of the UH community are urged to undertake personal safety and preparation measures.” CPIS regrets any inconvenience this may cause; however, the Center feels that given the situation, it is socially and morally responsible to act with an abundance of caution in asking our community to travel and participate in gatherings during this time. As the current situation develops, we will keep the public informed of any changes to additional CPIS activities.
