Gil Keith-Agaran for Senate District 5
A faculty committed to helping students grow intellectually and creatively to their fullest capacity, and challenging and collaborating with their peers in their areas of teaching and research is central to fulfilling that task. Providing a quality and demanding education requires a strong faculty developed locally and internally, and recruited nationally (and internationally) which is well-rewarded and supported. A strong and stable cadre of teachers and researchers will not only draw students to the university but also attract the best minds among their peers. Only a strong academy can cultivate citizens with a rich awareness of our Hawaii’s heritage as a kingdom and as part of the United States and the global community who can lead and serve in every sphere of civic society.
