Ka Pili Kai Fall 2011

The University of Hawai‘i Sea Grant College Program (UH Sea Grant) was built upon the foundation of collaboration and partnerships among many diverse individuals and organizations, and has remained true to this ethic since its inception over 40 years ago. Today, that same guiding principle led Dr. Gordon Grau, director of UH Sea Grant, to develop a new operational model in Sea Grant - the Center of Excellence model - that builds upon this idea by partnering with a wide range of university units through joint faculty positions and other synergistic relationships. As Dr. Gordon Grau noted, “the combined force of the many brought to focus on specific challenges and opportunities suggests a power to solve and succeed that transcends the simple sum of the operative forces.” In this issue we are pleased to share some of the ways that the centers are meeting this daunting challenge for the benefit of our coastal communities.
