RESOLUTION STATING THAT THE TRANSFER OF A NAMED, ENDOWED CHAIR FROM ONE ACADEMIC UNIT TO ANOTHER REQUIRES CONSULTATION
WHEREAS the transfer of a named, endowed chair from an academic unit in which it is established raises questions involving academic policies and academic programs;
WHEREAS this is a matter to be reviewed by the Manoa Faculty Senate; and
WHEREAS there are serious consequences of transferring named chairs,
AND WHEREAS the Manoa Faculty Senate opposes any administrative transfer of named chairs without the prior agreement of the faculty involved and full academic review by the Manoa Senate; therefore
BE IT RESOLVED THAT, with regard to the current case of the Matson Chair, there be no further action taken by the university administration without first establishing, in consultation with the Faculty Senate, an academic policy to clarify the intent, purpose, terms and locus of endowed chairs.
