A Call for Heroes!

Share your #HeroProf story with us

Mention the word, “heroes,” and our minds turn to images of those who fearlessly persevere despite the challenges that conspire against them. They brave new territory, climb mountains, even move mountains. They succeed despite the odds. Their attention to people assure us there are leaders who care. They lead by example and inspire all of us.

The Unsung Heroes

But heroes do not just reside in our imagination. The are many real-heroes in communities across Hawaii who are doing extraordinary things to make our lives better. They are the unsung heroes, the ones who work out of the limelight, and whose contributions we may overlook or take for granted.

Right here at the University of Hawaii

Many of these heroes are professors of the University of Hawaii system. The University of Hawaii Professional Assembly represents nearly 4,000 faculty who teach and conduct research at the 10 University of Hawaii campuses statewide. Each of them contributes to the well-being of our community by sharing their knowledge through instruction, by researching solutions to real-world challenges affecting our islands, and by volunteering their time to support numerous activities to benefit the community.
