HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The legislature this month has proposed devastating cuts to UH funding, leading the usually mild-mannered UH President David Lassner to describe the proposal as “ill-informed.” I’ve never hesitated to diss UH when I think it deserves it, but today I’m here not to bury it but to praise it.
What UH does for Hawaii
