Budget update

The legislative session is in the home stretch. They have now moved into conference committee meetings. We will gain a better idea of how the budget will shape up over the next two weeks as the session is scheduled to come to a close on May 5. We are anticipating and preparing for a reduction and the impact that reduction will have on the university.

I’d like to commend our faculty, staff and administrators who are dealing with the harsh realities of this budget situation every day. They continue to do all they can to make sure our students’ needs are met despite these challenges, and it will take everyone working together to move the university forward.

As I’ve said before, we welcome any and all support from the UH community and everyone who believes that higher education is a critical investment in our future to help us survive these very difficult times.

Oceanography graduate is 2011 Rolex Scholar

Recent Manoa graduate Christian Clark of the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology’s Global Environmental Science program has been named a 2011 North American Rolex Scholar from the Our World Underwater Scholarship Society.

Each year, the society awards year-long scholarships designed to expose a qualified young person to a wide range of experiences in various underwater-related fields. Clark will get to spend the next year of his life traveling the globe on a generous stipend to dive side-by-side with some of the planet’s leading aquatic explorers, marine scientists and underwater filmmakers. He also receives free dive gear, advanced training opportunities and a Rolex dive watch.
