The University of Hawai’i at Hilo has recently been awarded an AANAPISI (Asian American & Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution) 5-year grant aimed at promoting the success of Pacific Islanders in higher education. This multifaceted project involves engaging students in “high impact” activities both on- and off-campus, providing academic support services, designing and implementing culturally informed practices and policies, working with sending high schools and community colleges, conducting and disseminating research on factors that facilitate the success of Pacific Islanders, and advocating for social justice issues that impact Pacific Islanders in local and global communities. The project will also support and enhance the University’s new Pacific Islander Student Center on campus.
We are now recruiting individuals for three positions associated with the project: a Project Director, Educational Specialist, and a Researcher. I would appreciate it if you could distribute this announcement to any networks or individuals you may know who might be interested in applying for one of the positions.

Deadline to apply is January 13, 2012.
