Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungMalamalama: A History of the University of Hawai'i documents the many contributions the University has made over the decades to culture and education in the Islands. From its start, the University rejected the racial stereo-typing and prejudice common in territorial Hawai'i, thus fostering an ease of association among students of diverse backgrounds and providing, through student government and campus societies, a venue where future political leaders of the Islands could hone their skills. The story of how the University of Hawai'i grew from a regional undergraduate college to an internationally recognized graduate and research university, weathering repeated crises along the way, is told by emeritus professors Kamins and Potter in Part I. They highlight the University's relationship with the legislature, the actions and personalities of its very different presidents, and the effects of social upheaval and changing budgets on an evolving institution. Parts II and III offer particular histories by knowledgeable contributors, including faculty members and administrators, of the Hilo and West O'ahu campuses, of each of the seven community colleges, and of programs at the Manoa campus. Three alumni provide personal accounts of their years at the University.
