Tuition updates

The university has completed 7 of 10 campus public meetings on the proposed tuition schedule and will complete the last 3 and the HITS statewide transition by mid-October.

They meetings have been well attended and have generated some good discussion, which will be taken into account and will factor in to the administration’s final recommendation to the Board of Regents.

As part of the communications effort, President Greenwood, Chancellors Donald Straney and Gene Awakuni and Dean Maenette Benham appeared on the September 8 PBS Hawai‘i Insights program focusing entirely on the University of Hawai‘i and higher education.

First pharmacy grads on the job

The College of Pharmacy’s first graduates have been hired for jobs that require a PharmD in 16 states as well as Guam and Washington, D.C., at various retail chains, community pharmacies and hospitals.

According to a survey conducted by the college’s Department of Student Services, more than a third of the graduates who found work so far accepted jobs that allow them to stay in Hawai‘i. Upon their graduation in May 2011, 66 percent reported that they have obtained a job or were working in a paid residency. The average salary for graduates working full-time but not in a residency program is $117,000.
