EWC Administrative Listserv
The EWC administrative listserv is firstname.lastname@example.org. This listserv is used by the Education Program staff to send announcements. All current fellows are included in the listserv. We send announcements about EWC sponsored speakers, seminars, travel/field study grants, fellowship competitions, EWC events, and activities. You cannot reply to this listserv. It is an announcement posting listserv only. (Please note that when you complete your participation/award at the EWC, your name and email is removed from this list.)
The EWCPA listserv is EWCPA-L@lists.hawaii.edu. This listserv is one of the ways that the EWC Participants Association facilitates sharing of information within the EWCPA community. You can receive announcements, reply, and post announcements on this listserv. To join this listserv, please write to Shintaro Taniguchi at Shintaro.Taniguchi@hawaii.edu and provide your name and email address. This is an “Opt-In” listserv, meaning that you need to sign up in order to receive EWCPA listserv announcements.
Wednesday Evening Seminar
Beginning in September, the Wednesday Evening Seminar (WES) (website) will be held from 6:30-8:30 PM in Keoni auditorium at the Imin International Conference Center. Announcements containing the WES syllabus, speakers/topics, and scheduled dates will be posted to you via email on the EWC administrative listserv. WES will begin in September, meeting for approximately nine sessions, and conclude mid-November. This seminar is required for all first-year participants. Other fellows in their second/later years are welcome to participate as well.
Access to Burns Hall is available 24 hours/day and 7 days a week with a fob key. EWC staff will issue this key to you. To use the key place it over the black plastic square to the left of the stairwell entry door in the front of Burns Hall. This stairwell entry is located to the right of the main entrance doors. When you hear the buzzer sound you may open the door. All fellows receiving a fob key must return it to EWC staff at the end of their award. Failure to return the fob key or its loss and replacement will incur a charge of $10.
Computer Room & Free Wi-Fi
There is a computer room for your use in Burns Hall 2086/87. The computer room is open 24 hours for you to check e-mail and access the Internet. There is a printer in the room; however, participants must provide your own paper during office hours. The printer is not available for use after 4 PM. In the spirit of sustainability and collegiality, please keep your printing to a minimum and keep the room clean. Please do not bring non-EWC friends to use the computers. The computers are strictly for the use of current EWC participants. Free Wi-Fi is also available in Burns Hall for current EWC students. Instructions on how to register are available here.
If you are housed in EWC Housing, you are eligible for an MSC (Mail Stop Code) number for your mail. You will receive your mailbox assignments/combinations in Burns Hall when you come for your ID photo if you have not already been assigned one.
East-West Center Seminars
Weekly seminars sponsored by the various programs in the East-West Center are open to students. Visiting scholars or EWC Researchers share research. Announcements are sent via the EWC administrative listserv. Occasionally, these are referred to as “brown bag” talks, meaning they take place during the lunch hour and it is alright to bring your lunch.
In the event of a health or other critical emergency, please inform your scholarship/student program coordinator as soon as possible. Your coordinator will provide you with his/her contact information.
At a later date, you will receive an announcement regarding how to place an order for an East-West Center business card if you should wish to purchase a box of business cards.
