UH Manoa Chancellor’s Citation for Meritorious Teaching
Manoa’s Meritorious Teachers
Department of Political Science
A professor of political science, Sankaran Krishna believes that a teacher’s effectiveness “depends on how engaged and interested you are in the world around you, and how well you communicate that engagement to your students.”
A faculty member for nearly 20 years, Krishna views his teaching as a challenge to “creatively combine the circumstances and contexts of each semester in a way that energizes and excites both the students and myself about learning.”
A student noted, “He opens your mind and challenges your thinking.” Regarded as an outstanding teacher, one colleague remarked that he “brings a tremendous spirit and commitment to everything he does.”
