The Center for Pacific Islands Studies has developed an extensive educational outreach program designed to promote greater awareness and understanding of the Pacific region in the wider community. Seminars, workshops for K–12 teachers, film showings, and other public events, often involving other departments and centers on and off campus, seek to involve the university and the broader community in discussions on a wide range of topics. Prominent among the center’s outreach activities are its Visiting Artist program, its Fulbright–Creative New Zealand Pacific Writers’ Residency program, its international conferences, itscollaborative projects, and its occasional seminar series.
