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.

The Manoa John A. Burns School of Medicine is taking part in the national Joining Forces initiative to improve health care for the country’s active duty military, veterans and their families.

The effort is an initiative of the White House and First Lady Michelle Obama, who made the announcement last week.

The medical school will work to ensure that physicians are aware of the unique clinical challenges and best practices associated with caring for our war fighters. Specific emphasis will include new research and clinical trials involving post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, to better understand and treat these conditions.
