Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: [In Hawaiʻi we have] all the issues of urbanization and suburbanization and traffic and water management and safety issues of being in this urban environment... and [students] can write about it and they can do things that are impactful to make change. They can be that agent of change because they're involved in that meaningful way But then there's the campus inreach, right, that sort of idea that now that civic engagement is cultivating campus, relationship to this campus because how do we demonstrate our ability to really teach students what they need to learn if we're not demonstrating it here? Experiential, action-oriented... if this is such an urgency, then why aren't we doing something about it? We're in this island, we can't, we don't have that ability. This is what we have, and every bit of it matters.
