“The search advisory committee did an excellent job in identifying these four finalists, and I would like to thank them for their time, hard work and commitment to the search process. This is an impressive pool of finalists, and we are fortunate to be able to conduct these visits with campus and community constituents as part of the effort in finding the inaugural assistant provost for global engagement for UH Mānoa,” said UH Mānoa Provost Michael Bruno. “As always, we encourage UH faculty, staff, students and the public to participate and meet the candidates, and we look forward to receiving their feedback.”

Following the visits and review of the feedback from the search advisory committee and others, Bruno will be making a recommendation on this appointment to UH President David Lassner.
