HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - University of Hawaii President MRC Greenwood's sudden decision to step down with two years remaining on her contract caught many by surprise, even those closest to her. She has not addressed on camera her decision or what led up to it, until now.

Tannya Joaquin sat down with the embattled UH President for an exclusive one-on-one interview that Dr. Greenwood says will be her first and last.

Greenwood calls the Stevie Wonder Blunder the "least significant thing" that has happened during her presidency, but she believes it has overshadowed accomplishments over her 4 years as President such as the opening of the UH West Oahu Campus and Cancer Center.

Dr. Greenwood agreed to an in-depth interview with Hawaii News Now to shed light on what happened behind the scenes and share her side of the story.

In this commercial free HNN half hour special, the outgoing president of our 10-campus system has some surprising things to say about political pressure, her record as President, one of her most vocal critics, a past University president and the Stevie Wonder concert fiasco and fallout.
