WHEREAS the faculty of CTAHR, which has been involved in the reorganization plans over a period of three years through workshops and retreats, has been allowed to choose which unit it wishes to be aligned with; and

WHEREAS the Faculty Senate of CTAHR voted 18-0 on May 7,1999 to support the reorganization plan; and

WHEREAS on April 23, 1999, the University of Hawai'i Board of Regents approved Phase I, the reorganization of the administrative structure of CTAHR; and

WHEREAS the Faculty Senate Committee on Academic Policy and Planning has reviewed and endorsed the proposed Phase II reorganization of CTAHR; now
