University of Hawaiʻi Regent Randy Moore was unanimously elected as the chairperson of the UH Board of Regents at the board’s July 15, 2021 meeting. Moore’s term runs through the first meeting in July 2022, and he replaces Regent Ben Kudo, who served two terms in the position.

“Thank you all. I appreciate your confidence,” said Moore after his election.

Kudo and Regent Alapaki Nahale-a were also elected vice chairs. After the BOR leadership elections, Kudo thanked the board members for their support and hard work.

“I want to thank each and everyone one of you for your collective intelligence, wisdom and heart,” said Kudo. “I think we were truly a good team of people who were really concerned with the students, faculty and staff and the university as a whole, and I really think the university is in a better place.”

The regents also welcomed two new members, Diane Paloma and William F. Haning III, and returning regent Wayne Higaki.
