Senator Inouye's legacy is being honored and carried forward by a range of initiatives:
- The establishment of the Daniel K. Inouye Center for Democratic Leadership on the University of Hawaii Manoa campus. It will support:
The Inouye congressional papers, from which pertinent components will be digitized and shared with the Library of Congress to create a virtual reading room.
An oral history which will complement the telling of Senator's story by his family, friends and colleagues in Hawaii, throughout our nation, and on an international stage.
The Dan and Maggie Inouye Endowed Chair.
Academic programs including the Public Policy Center and public lectures on leadership and the importance of civic engagement.
Support for middle and high school STEM and civics programs to inspire the next generation of leaders.
- The Inouye video and media collection at the Giugni Archives at the University of West Oahu, which will be digitally available.
- International educational and cultural exchanges, which will seek a greater understanding among students, to include the recently named "Tomodachi Inouye Scholars."
- Partnership between the Smithsonian Institution, Bishop Museum and the DKI Institute to tell and share the Asian American Pacific story in Hawaii.
