Pavkovic, an associate professor of history at HPU, is also program chair for the Diplomacy and Military Studies programs.

At Newport, in addition to teaching, Pavkovic will conduct research for several projects. And while he will be taking a leave of absence from his duties at HPU, he will continue to contribute to HPU’s programs in a variety of ways including teaching classes online.

Pavkovic’s appointment strengthens an already strong relationship between Hawai‘i Pacific University and U.S. Naval War College, which reached an agreement in October 2002, allowing every course from HPU’s Master of Arts degree in Diplomacy and Military Studies program to be accepted into the War College curriculum, and vice versa.

The historic agreement, which Pavkovic coordinated, made HPU the first university in the U.S. to have bilateral articulation with the 121-year-old military college, so that courses from one institution will be accepted by the other toward its master’s degree. This allows students at the Naval War College to earn either a graduate degree in Diplomacy and Military Studies from HPU or a graduate degree in National Security and Strategic Studies from the Naval War College.

Pavkovic is a member of the American Historical Association, Association of Ancient Historians, and past president of the Society of Ancient Military Historians. He serves on the board of The Consortium on Revolutionary Europe and is a Fellow of the International Napoleonic Society. He is also a contributor to and author of numerous publications and has often served as a primary media resource on military matters. In December 2004, he was featured on a History Channel program focusing on the Battle of Rivoli (1797).

Dr. John Smith, assistant professor of mathematics and mathematics program chair at HPU, has been selected as assistant dean for the College of Liberal Arts. Dr. Douglas Askman, assistant professor of history, will serve as the new program chair for history and humanities. Dr. S. Michael Pavelec, assistant professor of history, will be the new program chairperson for the Diplomacy and Military Studies program.“As a team, I think we had an excellent opportunity through today’s event. I hope many students join our other events in the club because of what they saw.”
