eMindanao is a partnership born of the need to link together universities in Hawaii and Mindanao to share educational resources in the pursuit of forging understanding and peace in the southern Philippines. Envisioned to bridge the many cultures of the Philippines separated by geography, religion, and ideology, eMindanao strives to be a premier space of learning and conversation on Mindanao. eMindanao also serves as a forum of exchange and dialogue on the conflict and attendant peace process featuring information on the history and contemporary events on the region revealed in digital resources, such as news, scholarly articles, books, images, and other materials on the internet. The consortium consists of five partner universities operating individually and jointly. Its base is located at the Center for Philippine Studies (CPS), University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. This much we do in the name of bridging cultures and promoting peace.
