Corner                         Arts & Sciences Advisory Council

The Colleges of Arts & Sciences have many stimulating, informative, and thought-
inspiring activities going on all the time. Our Advisory Council members are proud of
them and want to share them with the community. Two years ago, we started the
Friends program to introduce these sources of excellence to our own friends, and in
January of this year, we began the Downtown Speakers Program, a long time dream of
Dean Judith Hughes, to reach people in the downtown Honolulu community.
But first, there were several hurdles to get over: identifying the speakers; finding the venue; and informing potential
attendees. The deans prepared a list of stimulating speakers and intriguing topics which the Downtown Speakers
Program Committee reviewed. Five talks were chosen which were thought to be of greatest interest to downtown
The venue for the talks had to be centrally located with convenient parking for those coming from outside the downtown
area; the room had to be large enough to hold up to 100 attendees; and the cost had to be next to nothing. Ultimately, the
Downtown Speakers Program Committee chose the facilities of Hawaiian Electric Industries whose location on Bishop
Square in the center of downtown Honolulu is ideal.
As for “getting the word out,” the Downtown Speakers Program Committee decided that it would use e-mail, starting
with an initial list of contacts and adding additional ones with each program. Before starting the e-mail announcements,
they mailed letters to the top executives of the biggest companies in Honolulu to let them know about the new program
and to ask for their help in informing their employees.
On January 8, the first presentation was held. To the delight of the deans and the Downtown Speakers Program
Committee, nearly 50 people attended a wonderful talk by Dr. Michael Hamnett, The Health of Hawaii's Coral Reefs:
A State-University Partnership. This was followed on February 12 with an intriguing talk by Dr. Ruth Dawson, Princess
Di of the North: Rethinking Catherine the Great, which was attended by 60 people!
In coming months, the series will continue: on March 11, Associate Dean Bion Griffin will talk on Angkor Wat—the
World’s Largest Temple, and UH Adventures in the Kingdom of Cambodia; on April 8, Professor Robert Littman will
speak on Mummy Talks: The Egyptian Mummy Project; and on May 13, Professor John G. Learned will tell about
Neutrino Studies at UH: From Uncovering Secrets of the Universe to Use in National Defense.
Along the way, the program received support from many people and organizations, notably Hawaiian Electric Industries,
which offered their facilities at no cost; Rebecca Goodman and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute; Ron Mobley of
Toastmasters International; members of the Advisory Council; Manoa Forum; University of Hawai‘i/Community
Partnership; and especially the members of the Downtown Speakers Program Committee: Dave Johnson, Charlotte Vick,
Ko Miyataki, Charles Wall, and Karin Mackenzie. The contributions of these supporters are invaluable to the success of
the Downtown Speakers Program and very much appreciated.

President’s Message
Dear CASAA Members, and Arts & Sciences Alumni and Friends,
Having just held our annual meeting/breakfast gathering on February 19, CASAA has a new
2004 Board of Directors and is ready for action. Once more, we are looking at a year full of
exciting events, offering numerous opportunities for our members and friends to be involved
with CASAA and the University.
The Scholarship Committee, under the able leadership of Chairman Russell Ando, will be
interviewing applicants and selecting the five students to receive the Rodney P. Santos
Scholarship of $1,000 each. The checks will be presented to the recipients by Rod, a for-
mer CASAA president, at a luncheon to be held at the Campus Center. The CASAA board
and the Arts & Sciences deans will also attend. This is a wonderful opportunity for alumni,
deans, and students to interact while “breaking bread.”
Our most ambitious activity for 2004 is our upcoming CASAA New England Travel Tour:
History, Culture, Flora, Art, Food and Wine which will take place in October. We are so
excited about this inaugural travel opportunity for Arts & Sciences alumni and friends,
and we think you will be, too, when you read the trip description on the next page. The
itinerary is customized with you in mind…travel at a leisurely pace with like-minded
companions. Actually, the itinerary was a collaborative effort with Dean Richard
Dubanoski (college friend of the director of the New England Culinary Institute),
Karin Mackenzie, the East Coast Alumni Association board, and myself; it truly
is a gem! We are limited to only 30 participants so please act immediately if you
would like to join us.
As we approach May 20 and this year’s Distinguished Alumni Award (DAA) dinner sponsored by the University of
Hawai‘i Alumni Association, I would like to call attention to a former DAA recipient who continues to distinguish her-
self in our community. Momi Cazimero (BA, ’55), former UH regent and vice-chairwoman in 1996 and former mem-
ber of the UH Foundation Board of Trustees, recently was elected to the American Judicature Society National
Chapter, recognizing her work on the State Judicial Selection Commission. She has just received the Pacific Business
News’ Gladys Kamakakuokalani Ainoa Brandt Kupuna Award for 2004. This award honors her as a strong visionary,
business leader, and community advocate. Momi is a stellar example of a liberally educated person. I was especially
struck by a quote in Pacific Business News by Doris Ching, UH Vice President for Student Affairs, “She’s not satisfied
with OK: she strives for perfection. That has definitely been an inspiration for me.” The amazing thing about our dis-
tinguished alumni—they just keep on giving back to the community and serve as examples of excellence found in UH
I end this message with another quote, one I heard after the CASAA breakfast meeting. A few people at our table were
talking to Dr. Alam about the number of hours he has to devote to his research projects, his teaching load, and his
many speaking presentations. He was then asked what he did in his spare time. His reply was, “That’s when I dream.”
