Aloha, my name is 'Ilima Long and I am the Student Faculty Engagement Specialist at NHSS. I support undergraduate students through programming, workshops and internships that foster the development of academic writing, scholarly inquiry and research. I also develop workshops, trainings and resources for faculty to better support the education experience and goals of our Native Hawaiian undergraduates. I received my Master's degree in Hawaiian Studies in 2014 and am currently pursuing my PhD in Indigenous Politics in the Political Science department.
