Kulana Noi'i

With support from the University of Hawai‘i SEED Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access and Success Program (IDEAS), the He‘eia National Estuarine Research Reserve, the University of Hawai‘i Sea Grant College Program, and Kuaʻāina Ulu ʻAuamo (KUA) established a partnership with a goal of promoting more collaborative and mutually-beneficial partnerships between UH faculty and students conducting research and the local communities who care for and utilize natural resources. The Kūlana Noi‘i (Research Standards) are the result of these efforts and other past and current community-researcher engagement activities.

The Kūlana Noi‘i provide guidance for building and sustaining not just working partnerships but long-term relationships between communities and researchers. These kūlana (standards) are intended to be flexible enough to apply to a range of different communities and to reflect on the perspectives and responsibilities of both communities and researchers.
