Welcome to Hawaii SSN

About the chapter

Hawaii SSN was launched in 2012 to connect high quality, independent research from scholars working at universities throughout the state. We hope to contribute to more effective public policy at the state and local levels, and to enhance citizen engagement in Hawaii. Our members are particularly interested in education, health and human services, and environmental policy.
