WHEREAS the Administration of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa has informed the SEC of its intention todissolve the Pacific Biosciences Research Center (PBRC), a fully-functional Organized Research Unit;

WHEREAS the Administration has produced neither the required Reorganization Plan, nor information necessary for the Committee on Administration and Budget and the Committee on Research to assess the proposed reorganization, despite requests to do so;

WHEREAS the Administration has informed the SEC of its intention to place the reorganization before an upcoming Board of Regents meeting;

BE IT RESOLVED that the Faculty Senate of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa urges the Board of Regents not to consider the reorganization of PBRC until all proper procedures have been followed and careful consideration has been given to the viewpoints of all concerned parties.
