NIC, Hawai’i institutions sign MOUs to support Indigenization, enhanced student opportunities

North Island College and the University of Hawai’i have signed two memorandums of understanding (MOUs) that support Indigenization, knowledge sharing, and study abroad opportunities. An MOU between NIC and UHawai’i’s seven community colleges will allow NIC students to pay NIC tuition while they complete studies in Hawai’i. The second agreement will build on the 15-year relationship between NIC and UHawai’i. “Indigenous-led, land-based language revitalization is at the very heart of NIC’s commitment to ‘work together as one’ and to walk the long path toward truth and reconciliation,” said NIC President Lisa Domae. “As island schools, we share a special kinship with the University of Hawaiʻi and Kapiʻolani Community College that we look forward to growing together.” NIC| Campbell River Mirror Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
