Six public forums scheduled for UH president’s search

by UH News, April 17, 2024

The University of Hawaiʻi Board of Regents has scheduled six county forums to gather feedback from the general public to help inform the search for the next president of the 10-campus UH System, the state’s sole provider of public higher education.

Each forum will be ninety minutes long and available in-person and virtually via Zoom. They will take place over a week-long period from April 30 to May 7, with two forums on Oʻahu and Hawaiʻi Island, and one forum each on Kauaʻi and Maui. The complete schedule and Zoom information is below.

The forums are part of the listening phase promised by the regents, which included a public survey that was completed in February with more than 2,000 responses.

WittKieffer, the Chicago-based firm hired to assist in the search, is using the feedback from the public forums and surveys, along with input gathered from interviews with the regents and the Presidential Search Advisory Group (PSAG), to develop the position description and leadership profile. The regents are expected to review both at the May 16 monthly board meeting, and if approved at that time, WittKieffer will begin the recruitment process.

The PSAG is made up of UH stakeholders and will make candidate recommendations to the search committee, which consists of all 11 regents. The board announced at its March 21 meeting that it plans to name finalists in September and announce the next president in October. The new president will begin in January 2025 and will succeed David Lassner, who announced in September 2023 that he will retire by December 2024.
