Update on Strategic Plan

From the Chancellor:

Hilo sealA Strategic Plan Review Committee was recently formed to review the progress we have made and identify areas in need of further work in the current plan. Committee members were chosen from nominations by University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo’s vice chancellors as representative of our university ʻohana including faculty, staff, students, and administrators. The members of the review group are:

Vice Chancellor Marcia Sakai will chair the group and report during the 2017 spring semester.

We will begin work on an updated Strategic Plan once the Board of Regents’ Integrated Academic and Facilities Plan is completed.

In the meantime, our work continues to be informed by our existing campus strategic plan and by the 2015-2021 UH System Strategic Directions.

Our overriding priority, however, is to improve significantly the recruiting, retention and graduation of our students.

Sincerely,

Don Straney
Chancellor

500 InteliSocket devices to analyze energy use to be installed on campus

On April 23 and 24, the Ibis Networks will be on campus to install the devices.

Aloha,

InteliSocket
InteliSocket

University of Hawai‘i at Hilo is moving forward with efforts to make our campus more sustainable, especially in areas that reduce our costs.

To that end, we need good baseline information to show results from our efforts and are beginning a program to measure electricity use by many of the machines, appliances and instruments on campus. The value of this information for developing energy reduction strategies was demonstrated in a Sustainability Committee pilot project two years ago.

On April 23 and 24, the Ibis Networks will be on campus to install approximately 500 InteliSocket devices. These devices will allow UH Hilo to capture and analyze usage data on PCs, accessories, copiers, refrigerators, microwave, coffee makers, drinking fountains, window a/c, vending machines, teaching and research lab equipment, exercise equipment, etc.

Tentatively, the following areas will be affected by this project:

  • EKH 2nd floor: Computer labs, CoBE office, Spatial imaging office and lab, and general offices
  • EKH Ground Floor: 5 Classrooms
  • Marine Science Building: Lab equipment, refrigerators, freezers and general offices
  • PB 8/8A: Window a/c and music equipment
  • SLC: Exercise equipment and office equipment
  • Hale Alahonua

Mahalo,

Don Straney
