Board of Regents to discuss Greenwood


HONOLULU (AP) — The University of Hawaii’s Board of Regents will discuss President M.R.C. Greenwood during a special meeting next week.

Greenwood is the only item on the board’s agenda for the meeting on Oct. 12.

The board will discuss Greenwood in an executive session closed to the public.

Lawmakers questioned Greenwood earlier this week about the university’s botched handling of a Stevie Wonder concert planned by the athletic department as a fundraiser.

The concert wasn’t authorized by the singer or his agents. The university wired $200,000 to a company claiming to represent Wonder, only to hear later from the artist’s real agents. The university hasn’t been able to recover the money it wired.
