Coach Chow, Kuali and PACOM

New head football Coach Norm Chow hit a “home run” in his first speaking engagement to the Downtown Athletic Club, attended by an overflow audience at Executive Centre.

The Kuali Financial System project continues on schedule with go-live planned in July 2012. Interfaces for payroll and purchasing will be completed by the end of January, and the contract and grant billing module is being adapted. Integration test cycles are planned in the coming four months, and a training plan is being created.

Governor Abercrombie and Admiral Willard have agreed to expand efforts to involve the state in sustainability and resilience interests shared by the university and the U.S. Pacific Command, or PACOM. We had the signing ceremony for the memorandum-of-understanding on a public-private partnership to prepare for disasters in the Asia-Pacific region in November. UH is identifying partners in the PACOM initiative with an anticipated visit from Tohoku University officials from Sendai, Japan.

Awarded to students during the 2012–13 academic year, the gift will support existing Lani-Kailua Outdoor Circle scholarships at Windward, including the LKOC Environmental Studies Scholarship and the Windward CC Agriculture Scholarship.

To date, the environmental studies scholarship, established in 2010, has awarded $5,000, and the agriculture scholarship, established in 1993, has awarded $9,000 in scholarship support.
