UH Manoa Chancellor’s Citation for Meritorious Teaching
Manoa’s Meritorious Teachers
School of Social Work
An associate professor of social work, Paula Morelli is committed to providing students with a relevant and quality education.
Her instructional philosophy is grounded in three principles: engaged pedagogy, critical and creative thinking, and mastery and application of knowledge and skills. Morelli’s teaching style is honest, open and relaxed, and her students are encouraged to ask difficult questions and engage in challenging dialogue about tough social issues.
A colleague notes, "Paula is a strong student advocate, has mentored numerous highly successful graduates, and her commitment to students is as strong as her commitment to a better society."
