About the Regina Titunik Memorial Award in Women’s Studies
Regina Titunik was a professor of Political Science at UH Hilo from 1995-2009. She was actively involved with the Women’s Studies Program (as it was then called), and was the newly-appointed Program Facilitator at her untimely death. She taught a cross-listed course called “Women and War,” and advocated for the establishment of a Women’s Studies major.
The memorial award was established in 2010 with the following description:
For the Women’s Studies student who best exemplifies Professor Titunik’s traits of rigorous scholarship, collegial cooperation, generosity, compassion, and resistance to injustice. Regina exemplified the philosophy of Women’s Studies: to work to transform institutionalized oppression and initiative transformative solutions.
