Dr. Franklin Kudo, assistant professor of accounting at UH West O‘ahu, has been awarded the Board of Regents Excellence in Teaching Award. He demonstrates a genuine enthusiasm for teaching and a dedication to his students that makes him an outstanding instructor and excellent role model. Kudo draws from his years of experience working in the private sector as a business and accounting professional and uses real-world examples to inspire and educate his students.
“Frank is an innovator in the classroom,” said UH West O‘ahu Chancellor Awakuni. “He is able to find new ways to inspire students while helping them develop a long-term appreciation of their academic discipline and its application outside of the classroom.”
“I firmly believe that Dr. Kudo is one of the best instructors I’ve had in my collegiate career. He understands me as a student and all that I struggle with on a daily basis and is there for me should I need his assistance. He is passionate about my learning and academic goals and strives to help me and my fellow classmates out as best as he can,” noted a UH West O‘ahu student.
Kudo is an active faculty member outside of the classroom and is the co-advisor to the UH West O‘ahu Accounting Club as well as the service-learning faculty advisor for the Federal Application for Federal Student Aid assistance program. He also volunteers as part of the UH Faculty Ambassador’s Program.
