The Board of Regents is currently reviewing the Senate Report. We will read the report and consider the recommendations of the Senate Committee on Accountability. The board shares the Senate's desire to strengthen the University of Hawai'i and improve its service to the people of Hawai'i. We have already initiated several efforts to tighten policies and procedures, as identified by our own internal audits and Advisory Task Group report. In compliance with state Sunshine Laws and the board's own governance practices, action on these issues will take time and must occur in a transparent and inclusive manner. The board appreciates the desire voiced by our various community stakeholders to make the university a better place and will continue its efforts to improve the university system.
