This year holds a profound significance for us as we joyously celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Shidler College of Business. Across the decades, we have undergone transformative growth and achieved great strides, all thanks to the unwavering dedication and invaluable contributions of our esteemed alumni, generous donors, and the vibrant community that surrounds us.

Our 75th anniversary is not just a marker of time; it is a testament to our enduring commitment to international excellence. I am genuinely excited to continue fostering the spirit of celebration, innovation, and collaboration that has defined our journey thus far.

Moreover, I am delighted to unveil our brand-new 75th Anniversary logo, which serves as a visual symbol of this historic milestone. Throughout the year, we will be hosting a series of captivating events and engaging programming to commemorate this special occasion. If you haven't already, we invite you to share your cherished memories of Shidler with us, and join in this year's festivities.

As we celebrate our anniversary, I humbly ask you to consider joining the Dean’s Circle, with an investment of $1,000 or more to our Advancement Fund. These gifts provide the flexibility to seize opportunities as they arise, address unexpected needs, engage with our alumni and fulfill ongoing commitments that support the work of our students, faculty and staff.

Together, we look forward to positively impacting our students, our island state, and the broader global community. Here’s to a year of continued growth, building upon our past successes and further fortifying the bonds within our Shidler ‘ohana. We sincerely appreciate your continued partnership.

Dean and First Hawaiian Bank Chair of Leadership and Management
