Research in the college is in good hands with the formation of the new Research Advisory Committee (RAC)! Members are Mohammad Arif (PEPS), Susan Crow (NREM), Noa Lincoln (TPSS), Creighton Litton (NREM), Daniel Owens (MBBE; Senate liaison), Mark Thorne (HNFAS), and Hua Zan (COF).

The RAC is an ad hoc committee to the CTAHR Senate tasked with advising the associate dean of research Walter Bowen (pictured). The RAC membership represents the diverse research interests of our college. Members’ appointments are for the current academic year (until the end of Spring 2020); reappointment will depend on the continued needs of the committee and the availability of individual members. The committee will meet regularly via web conferencing.

If you have any questions about the RAC, please feel free to contact any of the Senate Executive Committee members, including Sarah Yuan (cwlau@hawaii.edu).
