All UH West Oʻahu faculty and staff are encouraged to sign up for Pili ʻĀina, a unique professional development experience grounded in land, culture, and community. Now in its third year, Pili ʻĀina will bring together faculty and staff to learn about the moku (district) and ahupuaʻa (land division or watershed) where the UH West Oʻahu campus resides. Participants will
- learn about traditional moʻolelo (stories) from ʻEwa and Honouliuli
- visit culturally and historically important places in the area
- discuss how to integrate these experiences into work to better serve UH West Oʻahu students
- get to know new and returning faculty and staff while learning, working, and eating together
Happening Monday, Aug. 15 from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Pili ʻĀina is limited to 60 participants. Register online by Aug. 1. To receive a correctly sized shirt, please register as soon as possible. For any questions, contact Umi Jensen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pili ʻĀina is sponsored by the UH West Oʻahu PIKO Project, the UHWO Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence, and UHWO Academic Affairs.
