Caulfield is an assistant professor in the UH Manoa
Department of Family and Consumer Sciences. As a UH Manoa graduate,
he believes it is a privilege to be here, to make a difference and
to touch students’ lives. Caulfield was previously honored
with the Frances Davis Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award
and a Presidential Citation for Meritorious Teaching.
Caulfield loves to teach lifespan development which begins at conception
and proceeds until death. Although he has been teaching large sections
of lifespan development for more than eight years, he continually
challenges himself to make each semester better than the last. He
structures class time and activities to encourage face-to-face interactions
among students and him. His office is active, always bustling with
students involved in college clubs, research or consulting with him
on their class work and ideas. Whenever possible during the semester,
he tries to incorporate his own research on Asian American families
in Hawai‘i into his lectures.
Caulfield also serves as an academic advisor for Phi Upsilon Omicron,
the National Honor Society in family and consumer sciences.
