* Support for UH interns spending a semester in the Hawai`i Congressional offices and at the Smithsonian Institution. Support includes providing items from a “lending closet” consisting of linen (bedsheets, towels, pillows, comforters) and kitchen appliances. Students are welcomed to DC on their arrival, invited to participate in Hawai`i-associated events and assisted and wished a “bon voyage” on their departure.
* Participation in regularly scheduled activities of the Hawai`i State Society of Washington, DC, to include DC Cherry Blossom Festival events; the annual Kamehameha Lei-Draping Event in Emancipation Hall (Visitor’s Center of the Capitol); and various other gatherings and celebrations through the year.
* UHAA-NCRC represents the University of Hawai`i at the Kamehameha Lei-Draping Event by having members make a 11-12 ft. lei at the U.S. Botanic Garden at least a day prior to the Lei-Draping event. A second lei is also made to adorn the statue of Saint Damien de Veuster in Statuary Hall. All UH graduates and current and former students of the UH System are invited to join UHAA-NCRC members in the lei-draping.
* Participation in area High School College Fairs in the area with personnel from the UH Office of Admissions. UH student interns also participate in such events, sharing their personal experiences with potential students.
