Member of President Greenwood’s Council on Science and Technology Mary Walshok of San Diego Connect was in town to speak to the Hawaiʻi Business Roundtable and other key corporate supporters about how the city of San Diego and specifically the University of California at San Diego helped build from scratch a strong and vibrant partnership between the business community and their institution of public higher education.

Mary helped lead the effort to develop a common sense of purpose and to revitalize a stalled economy there, lessons we could certainly put to use in the islands! As a major institution with a presence on all islands, what a role UH could play in this collective activity!
