Fulbright Ambassador Charles Sasaki will offer a workshop on his experience as a Fulbright Scholar to Germany and Russia
November 15, 2013
Campus Center 301
University of Hawai‘i at Hilo
The Fulbright Ambassador Program trains and utilizes a select group of Fulbright Scholar alumni to serve as representatives for the Fulbright Scholar Program at campus workshops and academic conferences across the United States. Ambassadors have been selected from the full spectrum of U.S. academic disciplines, higher education institutions, and geographic regions and serve as official representatives of the Fulbright Scholar program at the events for which they are selected.
Charles Sasaki is dean of Arts and Sciences at the Kapi‘olani Community College. KCC is Hawai‘i’s largest and most comprehensive two-year college and enrolls one of the nation’s most diverse communities of students. As dean, Sasaki oversees instruction in nine world languages, transfer curricula for university-bound students, coursework to meet general education requirements, and select career programs including biotechnology, computer animation, and interface design. With particular interest in the needs of underserved and disadvantaged student populations, Sasaki has consulted for several institutions on curricular transformation and the assessment of learning outcomes. He consults annually with the United Negro College Fund to advise on the allocation of over 20 million dollars in scholarship support through the Gates Millennium Scholars Program. A website detailing Sasaki’s Fulbright experience can be seen at: http://www.cies.org/ambassadors/csasaki/.
There is no charge for the workshop.
Fulbright campus representatives and interested faculty from UH Hilo and Hawai‘i CC are encouraged to attend.
