HONOLULU — The University of Hawaiʻi Board of Regents (BOR) has approved the appointment of Peter Quigley to serve as the Interim Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at UH Mānoa, effectively immediately. The vice chancellor is the chief academic officer for the campus, providing leadership and ensuring that the academic, instructional, research and service responsibilities of faculty members and staff are performed at the highest level to maximize the educational experience of students.

Quigley currently serves as assistant vice chancellor of academic affairs and as a professor of English at UH Mānoa. He has also served as chancellor of Leeward Community College. Prior to his work at the Leeward campus, he was dean of the College of Arts and Humanities at Minnesota State University and dean of academics for Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.

In other board action, the BOR voted to grant established status to the Associate in Applied Sciences and the Certificate of Achievement degrees for Hawaiʻi Community College‘s Hospitality and Tourism (HOST) program. The HOST program is designed to provide job training for entry-level and first line supervisory level positions in the hospitality and visitor industry. It strives to help prepare students for careers to meet the growing needs of hotels and other hospitality occupations throughout the state.
