The search for Kapiʻolani Community College’s new chancellor has begun. The job was announced locally and nationally on January 5, 2018, and the expected start date is July 2018.

In making the search announcement, University of Hawaiʻi Vice President for Community Colleges John Morton said Kapiʻolani Community College is seeking a visionary leader who can guide the college to address challenges and opportunities that arise.

“The next chancellor must embody Kapiʻolani Community College’s mission, vision and values of kūpono, kuleana, mālama, kūloaʻa and kūlia by showing integrity and responsibility, protecting and perpetuating ancestral knowledge, supporting a rich community of learning, and striving for excellence,” Morton said.
