University of Hawaii forms panel to find president


HONOLULU (AP) — The University of Hawaii’s board is forming a selection committee to find a new president to succeed M.R.C. Greenwood after she retires this summer.

The Board of Regents on Thursday voted unanimously to form a seven-member selection committee.

Board Chairman Eric Martinson says the committee will develop a plan for the search and weigh the merits of hiring a search firm.

Regent John Holzman was named committee chairman. Other members include Jan Sullivan, Saedene Ota, Chuck Gee, Barry Mizuno, James Lee and Jeffrey Acido.

The board also voted to authorize an internal task group to come up with two or three potential candidates to serve as interim president.
