Research at UH Hilo
Support for research and scholarly activities at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo is coordinated by a Research Office, led by Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Matthew Platz (pictured).
The UH Hilo Research Council, whose members are appointed by the vice chancellor for academic affairs for three-year terms, is the chief recommending body for the vice chancellor. The council administers the intramural grant program, proposes policies and procedures for extramural grant activities by the campus, and advises the vice chancellor on matters concerned with research and grant activity. The UH Hilo Research Council is chaired by Ken Hon, professor of geology.
UH Hilo actively supports research and scholarly activities by faculty, students and staff. The university has steadily increased its extramural grant activity, while also establishing an intramural grant program to foster faculty and staff development.
