Keeping Hawaii Multilingual

Budget cuts at the University of Hawaii Honolulu may mean reducing courses in Filipino and Ilocano. Although the number of students is increasing, the university budget has remained the same. The administration is considering reducing classes in the spring semester and offering them only in the fall. A group of students at the University is fighting the proposed cuts. Currently, about 200 students are taking Filipino classes and another 100 are taking Ilocano.
