UH regents approve Manoa chancellor position

Advertiser Staff

History repeated itself yesterday as the University of Hawaii-Månoa got its own leadership separate of the UH system.

The UH Board of Regents at its monthly meeting officially separated the position of chancellor of the flagship Månoa campus from president of the entire UH system. Månoa faculty have pushed for the division because they said the current system has left their school as the only one in the 10-campus system that does not have its own advocate.

Over the past 25 years or more, the university has flip-flopped between having a separate Månoa chancellor and lumping that responsibility with the president’s.

The latest administrative switch will happen when UH hires a new president and begins its search for a Månoa chancellor. UH President Kenneth Mortimer, will retire this summer.
