The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa will unveil a draft of its strategic plan on Wednesday, May 1. A lunchtime event has been planned that will feature free food, entertainment, and a gallery of the draft Mānoa Strategic Plan.

The event, titled "Destiny Defined," will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the lawn fronting Bachman Hall, and will unveil the draft of the strategic plan developed from ideas collected from the Listening Project, electronic bulletin boards, open forums, working groups, the steering committee, and through the February 1st "Defining our Destiny" planning workshop, in which more than 1,400 people participated.

"This event is an opportunity to celebrate the work and dedication of so many people who have stepped forward to help plan and improve our University," said Karl Kim, UH Mānoa Interim Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.

Destiny Defined is open to the public, and people are encouraged to bring a blanket and enjoy lunch on the lawn. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be served, and entertainment will be provided by local entertainer and UH Mānoa Hawaiian Studies Professor Jon Osorio.

The event is co-sponsored by the Associated Students of the University of Hawaiʻi (ASUH), Graduate Student Organization (GSO), UH Mānoa Faculty Senate, UH Mānoa Clerical Association, UH Mānoa Administrative, Professional, and Technical (APT) Bargaining Unit 8, and UH Mānoa Academic Deans and Directors.
