Research Day at the Capitol

On February 6, 2024, College of Education faculty members and graduate assistants participated in the second annual UH Mānoa Research Day at the State Capitol. Events were held on the fourth floor of the Hawaiʻi State Capitol Building and included tables, demonstrations, and interactive activities.

This year’s theme, UH Mānoaʻs Kuleana to Hawai‘i and the World: Our Commitment to Excellence in Research, gave faculty members from the college’s Department of Curriculum Studies, Learning Design and Technology, and Special Education an opportunity to highlight how our innovative programs and research are contributing to the university’s global impact in strategic areas.
