Welcome from the Chancellor

Dear Students,

If you were a Kapi‘olani CC student in 2020-2021, welcome back! Last year was marked with major changes. We are now all too acquainted with social distancing, masks, Zoom, and all kinds of new technologies.

If you are a new student in 2021-2022, welcome to Kapi‘olani and to college life.

While I am looking forward to seeing more students on campus and to seeing you interacting with each other, the pandemic-related challenges are still with us. Our desire is to keep everyone as safe as possible, so please assist us in following the new protocols. Please upload your vaccination card, if you were vaccinated, or if you were not vaccinated and you’re coming on campus for classes or to use campus services such as the library, you may be asked to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test every week.

Whether you choose to continue your education fully online, completely in-person or a mix of the two, we welcome you and hope you will find your purpose at Kapi‘olani Community College. Because, when you find your purpose, your academic journey will be focused and meaningful, in spite of this pandemic.

I wish you a successful and healthy semester and a great year,

Louise Pagotto
