Place-based research is especially important in the Hawaiian Islands where communities have deep cultural, ecological, spiritual, and social ties to place. This workshop will feature a panel of UH Faculty recognized as leaders in place- based research across diverse disciplines. Panel discussion will focus on the importance of place-based research in the Hawai‘i context as well as the panelists’ personal experiences designing and implementing place-based research initiatives.

This workshop is the first in a three part series providing professional development around best practices for building and sustaining long- term relationships between researchers and community.

Beverages will be provided. Please feel free to bring your own lunch.

Please register as space is limited.
