The Board of Regents met this afternoon to initiate the process of selecting the next President of the University of Hawaiʻi. The Board appointed a task group, chaired by John Holzman and including Regents Saedene Ota and Jan Sullivan, to report on the logistics of the presidential search.

The Board respects the University’s numerous constituents and acknowledges the importance of soliciting public input. The Board made no substantive decisions about the selection process at this meeting and will hold a public, facilitated meeting in early June to consider the process for the selection of the University’s next leader.

At that time, the Board will appoint a selection committee composed of Board members.
