The public got a chance to weigh in on Friday on finding the next University of Hawaii president.
The Board of Regents held a meeting and welcomed testimony on replacing MRC Greenwood.
There are just a few months until she retiresand the selection process can be costly.
“Should you decide to bring in someone from the outside, please ensure that it be someone who can accept that he or she cannot rely on their default assumptions of how things work in other places,” said a member of the public.
Following testimony the Board of Regents met behind closed doors where they appointed a regents task group to report on the logistics of the presidential search.
Their next public meeting is scheduled for early June where board members will be chosen for a selection committee.
