The College of Arts and Sciences held its annual Student Award Convocation Celebration on May 4, 2023.
In the sociology course “Food and Society,” students study food insecurity (a lack of access to enough food for every person in a household to live an active, healthy life) and that theme was prominent at their teach-in event.
The new book brings together country experts with negotiation specialists to apply negotiation theory to the North Korea denuclearization process.
Over the course of a quick three years, Todd Inouye arrived at UH Hilo, was promoted, received tenure, and became director of the university’s business and economics college.
The purpose of the annual Career Fair is for UH Hilo students to meet potential employers, build professional connections, and network to find internships and career opportunities.
The class, Interdisciplinary Studies: Kuleana and Community, encourages students and instructors alike to strengthen their connections to UH Hilo, the community of Hilo, and Hawai‘i Island as a whole.
“Learning is a community endeavor where students can play with concepts and make it make sense to them,” says Katherine Young, new chair of UH Hilo’s Department of Justice program.
The project is significant to UH Hilo because Hawai‘i Island was chosen as a primary training location for thousands of Peace Corps volunteers in the 1960s and the university’s precursor—UH-Hilo Branch—contributed greatly to the training program.
