A commitment to the people
CFHT’s community legacy in the world of MSE
At the same time, MSE will offer ample opportunities for students outside of Hawaii to learn about astronomy by facilitating observatory visits, either in person or remotely.
When CFHT staff attend conferences, they make an effort to engage with local students from elementary to graduate level. CFHT offers virtual visits and talks by staff to students and the general public around the world. MSE is committed to expanding these efforts to engage more students and communities within the partnership community. We envisage MSE will host visiting graduate and undergraduate students to work alongside observatory staff on a variety of projects from astronomical research, engineering development to computer science.
In all its endeavours, MSE will remain deeply committed to balancing cultural and environmental considerations, from the design and operation of the observatory itself, in our realization of the new MSE partnership.
