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.
