What is Hui Dui?
Hui Dui is the name of the student body of the Library and Information Science Program at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. All registered LIS students are automatically members of this organization. "Hui" is the Hawaiian word for organization; "Dui" is the phonetic spelling of Melvil Dewey's name (among other things, Dewey was an advocate of spelling reform). Hui Dui officers work to provide various support and services to the LIS students.
What We Do
Hui Dui officers develop their leadership skills by representing the students of LIS. They attend faculty meetings to provide a voice for the student body, and help themselves and their fellow students form a collegial network of friendship and professional support that can extend beyond the MLISc degree. They plan the New Student Orientation to introduce and integrate incoming students into the program, and give the Graduation Dinner to celebrate the achievements of the LIS graduates as they go out into the world.
How We Do It
The officers and students of Hui Dui prepare themselves for their careers by supporting their efforts independent of the program. They rely on themselves to raise funds for their activities and celebrations. Once-a-semester fundraisers provide the bulk of the funds, which provide for the two main events, the Orientation and Graduation Dinner, while ongoing activities like snack sales and printer paper are self-supporting by charging a minimal amount.
If you have any questions or comments for us, please feel free to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your continuing support of Hui Dui and the LIS Program!
