Hung Wo and Elizabeth Lau Ching Foundation Award for Faculty Service to the Community
Service Award Winner
David A. Krupp
Windward Community College
David A. Krupp is an associate professor of biological science at Windward Community College and an affiliate faculty member at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology. He is also an advisor to Windward Community College’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter.
Krupp brings his strong academic credentials and high level of commitment and enthusiasm to many local environmental-related organizations including the Kaneohe Bay Regional Council, Hawaii Reef Check and the Windward Ahupuaa Alliance. For two summers, he led community group tours to the waters off Coconut Island to observe coral activity, thus raising public awareness on the need to protect Hawaii’s reefs. Krupp also speaks before numerous community groups on a diverse range of scientific and environmental topics. As a result of Krupp’s activities, the community looks to Windward as the primary focal point for support and advice on environmental issues and projects.
For a decade, the Hung Wo and Elizabeth Lau Ching Foundation Award honored faculty members for significant contributions that strengthened ties between the University of Hawaii and the community. The award is no longer given.
