Discover the University of Hawaii at Manoa

February 1, 2012


Let’s Go Green!

Sustainability is at the top of mind for many — and for good reason. President Obama spoke about the need for energy innovation in his address to the nation. Governor Abercrombie addressed the desire to lessen our dependence on imported oil in his 2012 State of the State speech. And we at UH Mānoa daily pursue and actively celebrate our many successes and continued transformation from energy user to energy generator. In fact, I was privileged to meet President Obama and former President Clinton at the White House in December, when they welcomed selected leaders from both public and private sectors who have pursued diverse renewable energy strategies (see In the News below). I was thrilled to greet them both with a hug of aloha and share how our campus is doing its part to “light the way toward energy solutions.”

Mahalo nui loa,

Virginia S. Hinshaw
Chancellor, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
