MANOA FACULTY CONGRESS/SENATE RESOLUTION

ON AUTONOMY FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII

ADOPTED UNANIMOUSLY AT OCTOBER 15, 1997 MANOA FACULTY CONGRESS/SENATE MEETING

WHEREAS the ability of the University of Hawaii to address the educational needs of the State, pursue academic excellence, respond to competition in the higher education community, and take responsibility for its own actions requires that the University control its own assets;

AND WHEREAS the exercise and maintenance of the University's authority to manage its own assets depends on the right to hire its own legal counsel;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the University of Hawaii, under the Board of Regents, be given autonomy to control its own assets, land, people, and money, and the right to hire legal counsel to exercise and defend this autonomy.
