Welcome to ACCESS Engagement.
ACCESS Engagement develops and administers service-learning and other civic-engagement activities, projects, and programs for the college primarily – but we also run a number of large programs for the wider community, UHM in general, and other institutions of higher education.
ACCESS stands for Advising, Civic, and Community Engagement in the Social Sciences and is a vital part of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa's (UHM's) College of Social Sciences (CSS) that offers services statewide.
Everyone participating in service-learning activities with us MUST COMPLETE THIS ONLINE REGISTRATION FORM and turn in a signed original of our LIABILITY WAIVER/RELEASE FORM (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vmSww5_UaHYcePnraEYEZBGn7Yvij5Ca/view) to our office before starting service activities.
We welcome family members, guests, and others not formally enrolled as service-learning students at several of our activities and programs. They must also complete this online registration and the waiver form.
If you are under 18, or if you are bringing children under 18, please note that minors also need to be registered here and that a parent or legal guardian must sign their waiver/release forms.
If you are not a student, or not participating in service learning for credit, please write "NA" (for "not applicable") to any questions that are not relevant to you.
If you are from an institution of higher education other than UHM, you may have additional registration and waiver requirements to comply with for that institution. Be sure to check with your instructor and your institution's service-learning office.
Once you have selected a service-learning site, complete and turn in a signed site agreement/service connections form. You will probably also be asked to complete additional paperwork at your service-learning site.
Be sure to document the number of hours invested in the project with a time sheet/participation record signed by your site supervisor. See further instructions on our website: http://socialsciences.hawaii.edu/access/engagement
