University of Hawaii advertises for new president

Posted: Updated:

HONOLULU (AP) - The University of Hawaii is advertising for a new president.

The university said Wednesday print and online advertisements will appear in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Midweek and Pacific Business News in Hawaii. Nationally, the ads will appear in the Chronicle of Higher Education.

The Board of Regents presidential selection committee has been gathering suggestions and input on the president position for the past six months. The university says the committee plans to continue gathering feedback on each campus through the spring.

Those interested in applying or nominating candidates may write: presidentialsearch@hawaii.edu.

Chief Information Officer David Lassner is serving as interim president during the search.

He took over last year after M.R.C. Greenwood said she would step down to deal with health problems and spend more time with her family.
