This is the UH Hilo report. News about people, events and programs at the University of Hawai`i at Hilo.

Today, many graduates leave college not knowing what they’d like to do with their degree, or having a job to practice it in. Enter The Journey to Success, a comprehensive career and professional development program offered by the College of Business and Economics, which is designed to eliminate that dilemma.

Through a series of mandatory and voluntary activities during a student’s
four years in college - including a personal executive career mentor, career exploration events, job shadowing experiences, mock interviews, and internships - students not only identify a career field that matches their personality and interests, they also put themselves in a position to be gainfully employed in that field the day they graduate.

This is the UH Hilo report. News about people, events and programs at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo. UH Hilo honored members of its faculty with excellence in teaching awards during spring commencement held on May 13.

Dr. Adam Pack, professor of psychology, received the UH Board of Regents Award for Excellence in Teaching. Students and colleagues describe him as an outstanding, engaging and enthusiastic teacher, an effective advisor and a wonderful mentor. The Frances Davis Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching was presented to Physics and Astronomy Instructor John Hamilton. Students say his teaching shows that learning is much more than equations and memorizing facts, but about the work they put in and the skills they develop along the way. And receiving the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching was Dr. Alexander Nagurney, instructor in psychology. Nagurney models excellence and creativity both inside and outside the classroom, and possesses an ability to communicate difficult concepts and key principles in the most challenging of subjects.
