Trip to Washington, D.C.
I spent a week in Washington, D.C., earlier this month meeting and connecting with a number of different university constituencies.
The East-West Center is celebrating its golden anniversary this year, marking 50 years of success in promoting better relations and understanding among the people and nations of the United States, Asia and the Pacific. I had the opportunity to attend its 50th Anniversary Celebration, and I met and spoke with a number of East-West Center and UH alumni at a special event with the UH Alumni Association. It was a great experience to hear from these alumni about their affinity for the university and their ideas for how we can continue to engage them.

Second Annual MELE Workshop
Honolulu Community College is gearing up for its second annual MELE Songwriters Workshop June 25-27.
The workshop, an endeavor of the college’s Music and Entertainment Learning Experience program, provides participants with three intensive days in a creative, constructive and inspiring setup, interacting with nationally successful songwriters and multimillion-dollar sellers in all music genres—pop, urban, R&B, country, film/TV.
An opening night participant showcase concert features performances of songs developed by workshop participants and a Saturday evening concert at the Hawaii State Art Museum features the workshop’s presenters.
