Four finalists for the Kauaʻi Community College chancellor position have been selected by University of Hawaiʻi Vice President for Community Colleges Erika Lacro based on recommendations by the chancellor search advisory committee. The finalists will participate in a final round of interviews, including a public forum for each candidate, on January 25 and 26 at the Kauaʻi CC Fine Arts Auditorium. The public is invited to attend the forums in person or via Zoom.

“The open forums are an excellent opportunity for UH faculty, staff, students and the public to learn more about the final candidates,” said Lacro.

The chancellor will report to Lacro, who welcomes feedback on each finalist.

Following the visits and review of the feedback from the chancellor search advisory committee and others, Lacro plans to submit a recommendation to UH President David Lassner.
