The University of Arizona has hired a new dean for its Honors College.

And though he’s been a longtime academic at the University of Hawaii and currently at the University of Oregon, Terry Hunt is best known internationally for the research he’s done on Easter Island.

His work was featured on PBS and in National Geographic and was chronicled in his book, "The Statues That Walked: Unraveling the Mystery of Easter Island."

We spoke with Hunt before he starts his new job in Tucson next month.
