Lauren K. Robel

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Chancellor Search Advisory Committee has named a third finalist for the UH Mānoa chancellor position. Lauren K. Robel will be participating in a final round of interviews on the Mānoa campus on January 23 and 24. Robel currently serves as executive vice president and provost at Indiana University Bloomington. Before becoming provost, she served for a decade as dean of the Indiana University Maurer School of Law.

Robel was originally identified as a finalist and invited to campus at the same time as finalists John V. White and Sonny Ramaswamy, but was unable to accept the invitation at that time.

“The Search Advisory Committee is delighted that the campus community will have the opportunity to meet a third outstanding candidate, and looks forward to receiving their comments,” said Search Advisory Committee Co-Chair David Karl, the director of the UH Mānoa Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Education.

The campus visit will include a series of meetings with campus stakeholders, as well as a public presentation. The public presentation will be on Tuesday, January 24 at 3:30 p.m. in the Architecture Auditorium and will be live streamed.

The open forum provides an opportunity for the community to ask questions and learn more about Robel. Participation in the selection process by students, faculty, staff and the public is highly encouraged and valued.

Feedback can be submitted at the executive search website.
