HONOLULU HawaiiNewsNow) – The University of Hawaii Board of Regents Thursday extended UH President M.R.C. Greenwood's appointment for an additional three years, to run through July 31, 2015.
Board of Regents chairman Howard Karr said that Greenwood has steered the UH System during a time of drastic budget cuts, while moving forward on critical projects, ranging from major research initiatives such as the UH Cancer Center and the proposed Thirty Meter Telescope to securing a bright future for the University's athletic teams in the Mountain West and Big West Conferences.
The regents praised Greenwood's proactive role convening of the first Hawaii Higher Education Summit last fall, and this month's highly successful symposium on innovation.
"We believe Dr. Greenwood has demonstrated her effectiveness and her commitment to UH. The Regents are confident that the University and the State of Hawaii will benefit from her continued leadership," said Karr.
