As we welcome you back to Leeward for our Spring 2021 semester, we are excited to announce the opening of our new Student Services Welcome Center. Despite most of our classes being offered online we have created a space, on campus, where students can get access to key services all in one place.
Visit us on the second floor of the AD building (see map), Monday-Friday, 8:30AM - 4:00PM, for the following services:
Leeward students – you're almost there! Just one more week of class, then finals, and you'll have made it through the Fall semester. Now, it's time to set your sights on Spring 2021. Don't let the challenges of a pandemic stop you from continuing your education. We're here to help you every step of the way, and we'll start by dispelling some of the common myths that might prevent you from continuing at Leeward in Spring 2021.
This December marks the one-year anniversary of the project, Faces and Places of Leeward Community College, a website created by and for Leeward CC students.
The site features profiles of students, faculty, and staff, in addition to videos of students’ speeches about their experiences studying at Leeward. The goals of the project are to showcase the work of students in English as a second language (ESL) courses and to foster connections among students, faculty, and staff.
Help us communicate with you better and meet your needs!
Staying connected with our students is one of our highest priorities. Tell us what you like and don't like about our social media, whether or not you feel supported and encouraged, and share your opinions about online learning. Complete our student survey and we'll enter your name in a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card or a brand new iPad!*

Hurricane #Douglas is strengthening as it approaches our islands. We should prepare for a significant wind and rain event. Take the time to be prepared and be aware of local emergency management announcements and media for the latest Hurricane Douglas updates. We'll include status updates on Leeward's Emergency Information website and social media.
Here are some good resources about hurricanes and emergency preparations:
Leeward Community College has flipped the switch on becoming one of the first virtually net-zero campuses in the country. The campus is generating 97 percent of its energy through on-site photovoltaic (PV) systems, including solar shade canopies, rooftop arrays and distributed energy storage. This was done following a performance contract that reduced consumption through various energy efficiency measures.
The past few months have been trying times for our communities. Last week, the death of George Floyd sparked national and international demonstrations. The death of an African American man at the knee of a white police officer is unacceptable and is a vivid expression of the racial injustice that continues across our nation. Our Leeward ‘ohana sends our deepest sympathies to those who have been directly impacted, and to everyone whose hearts are broken.
