Hilo announced it will begin its search for a new chancellor. Chancellor Rose Tseng, who has led the campus since 1998, will step down at the conclusion of her term of appointment on June 30, 2010. During her tenure, Tseng increased enrollment, grants and global recognition of UH Hilo, as well as built new facilities and started new degree programs.

The UH Hilo Chancellor’s Search Advisory Committee has been constituted, co-chaired by Sevki Erdogan, Hilo faculty congress and professor in computer science and David Lassner, system vice president for information technology and chief information officer.

The committee’s intent is to complete the search and announce Hilo’s new chancellor by summer 2010.
