UH Board of Regents approves Greenwood’s salary

Outgoing University of Hawaii president MRC Greenwood will earn $300,000 a year beginning in September 2014.

The UH Board of Regents unanimously approved her salary on Thursday.

Greenwood will join the faculty at the John A. Burns School of Medicine and work six months out of the year to help create a center for diabetes and obesity.

As part of the deal when Greenwood was hired as UH president, she was designated a tenured professor.

“President Greenwood’s reputation, her managerial ability, her leadership ability, her energy, for $292,000 a year, that’s a good service to the people of Hawaii,” UH Board of Regents chair John Holzman said.

The regents still have to select an interim president to fill Greenwood’s post when she resigns next month.
