UH faculty senate delays confidence vote


HONOLULU (AP) — The University of Hawaii’s faculty senate has delayed a confidence vote on the university president.

Faculty members voted 30-20 Wednesday to postpone the vote after hearing a recommendation from the senate’s Committee on Administration and Budget. The committee advised faculty members that the confidence vote on M.R.C. Greenwood was premature.

Greenwood addressed the faculty and told them she was confident that she had acted properly faced with the athletic department’s botched Stevie Wonder fundraising concert.

Lawmakers earlier this month grilled Greenwood about the concert, which it turns out the singer never authorized. The university is trying to recover a $200,000 deposit from a company that claimed to represent Wonder.
