The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Office of Research has launched a new website highlighting various faculty and staff research and scholarly activities taking place at the campus.
Keaohou is an online magazine featuring photos and profiles of initiatives being undertaken by Hilo faculty, students and staff along with a link to the Office of Research that contains information about seed money grants, intramural programs, travel awards, the new myGRANT system and other research information.
For Daniel Brown, interim vice chancellor for research and economic development, the website is the fulfillment of a longtime dream.
“We all talk about how small UH Hilo is, but we are no longer all that small, and we often don’t know about the interesting work our colleagues are doing,” Brown said. “It is really surprising, even to people on campus, the quality and quantity of first-class scholarship that takes place here in Hilo.”
Brown hopes greater understanding of the work taking place on campus will lead to collaborative efforts with other members of the UH Hilo community and outside scholars.
