Wednesday, Feb. 11, highlighting the growing connection and history
between China and Hawaii. The presentation will be followed by
discussion/question s. Drop in any time during the presentation.

The room is the big glassed in corner room to the right as you exit
the elevator on the 3rd floor. Hope to see you there! There is plenty
room for everybody. Again, this event is being held at UH Hilo in the

If you can stop by, it is an ideal time to learn about this area of
CHUS, provide input from your own experiences, and to also meet
graduate students in the Education department. Again, the details are:
