Dawes N. Hiu, 72, was a strong supporter of Chaminade University far beyond his more than 30 years as a professor and administrator.
Under his tenure, the Chaminade University Educational Foundation grew substantially.
"His success at the university dealt directly with his own level of commitment to the university's mission," said Tim Dolan, Chaminade's director of development and institutional advancement, who worked with him through the foundation.
When Hiu died Oct. 12 while traveling in Spain, he served as president of the foundation.
Hiu retired from Chaminade after 30 years as a professor and later academic dean and vice president for academic affairs. He received the Chaminade Lifetime Service Award when he retired in 1990.
"Dawes Hiu was such a strong supporter of Chaminade," said Chaminade President Sue Wesselkamper in a statement. "He made lasting contributions in so many ways. We are grateful for all he accomplished in his rich and generous life."
On the invitation of the Rev. Robert Mackey, Chaminade's first president, Hiu left the University of Hawaii to design a chemistry curriculum. He also wrote the faculty manual and academic catalog.
He also served as chairman of the Department of Science and Mathematics.
