Research at UH Hilo

Administration of Research at UH Hilo


Support for research and scholarly activities at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo is coordinated by the UH Hilo Research Office, led by Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.

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 convened by Kris Roney, VCAA .
