The Mānoa Faculty Senate supports the efforts of Interim President McClain to organize his administration and move forward to address the serious issues the University faces. At the same time we wish to point out that the reorganizations of both the System and the Mānoa Chancellor's Office are complicated "works in progress" with many issues yet to be resolved. Among the outstanding issues are:
1. The role of the newly-defined Vice-President for Academic Policy Planning (VPAPP) in relation to the individual campuses.
2. The role of a System Vice-President for student Affairs, especially in light of the new functional statement for VPAPP.
3. Definition of the respective roles of the Vice-President for Research and the newly-appointed Vice-Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education at Mānoa. This matter is complicated by the proposal to create a System Senior Vice-President for Health Services.
4. The appropriate distributions of Human Resources and Information Technology Services between the System and the campuses.
5. The delegation of authority for management of International Programs.
6. Identification of the resource allocations associated with these functions. We look forward to a continuing dialogue with Interim President McClain on these matters.
