Read the inaugural newsletter of the Office of the Provost: Highlights & Current Initiatives, April 2022.
The Office of the Provost serves as the home for innovative initiatives that cross the boundaries of education, research, student affairs, and outreach. Current initiatives include the following.
The Strategic Investment Initiative is designed to increase cross-unit and cross-disciplinary collaboration in strategic areas that, with start-up funding, have a strong possibility for success in building on our strengths while addressing challenges. Learn more about the 2022 Call for Proposals!
The Health Sciences Initiative is designed to identify opportunities to leverage and build on our strengths in health sciences research, education, and extension for the state and beyond. The steering committee is composed of campus and external colleagues with vested interests in our success in this area. Learn more about this work.

The Commission is charged with examining how we have responded to racism and bias at UH Mānoa and proposing ways to move forward together by approaching issues in an honest, open and rigorous manner. Learn about the current work of the Commission and its subcommittees!
