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.

This program will help West O‘ahu build and expand its curricula and programs so it can meet the demands of a fast-growing student population. The caliber of the visiting scholars will also help recruit and inspire exemplary students and promote the university’s intellectual, creative, cultural and community resources.
