More about the Senate

  • Academic freedom is of most importance to me in our teaching as well as our research, and being surrounded by colleagues in the MFS who are committed to the same reminds me of the collective excellence of UHM. I continuously grow from the diversity of faculty voices in MFS on similar issues and topics.

  • This is my third time to serve on the Manoa Faculty Senate and having that experience has allowed me to meet amazing colleagues all across campus. Participating in faculty governance also gives us a voice to influence policy decisions and give administrators a faculty perspective. You also gain valuable insights into issues on the campus.

  • Serving on the faculty senate let's me stay current on campus initiatives and keeps me involved and informed. Through senate, I also get to meet colleagues from across campus that I would otherwise never work with.
