HONOLULU - Interim Manoa Chancellor Denise Eby Konan has announced the appointment of Clark E. Llewellyn, AIA, to be Dean of the University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa School of Architecture. Clark has been a faculty member of the School of Architecture at Montana State University since 1984 and their Director for the past 12 years.

"Clark Llewellyn is an experienced, energetic, and confident leader," said search advisory committee chair Mary Boland. "He recognizes the special connection of the University and the School of Architecture to the Hawaii sense of place. He brings to the University of Hawaii leadership in architecture through his association with the American Institute of Architecture and passion for the future of architecture.

"The Search Committee, business community, faculty, and students were impressed with his easy and outgoing personality," Boland added. "He understands the value of partnership between education and practice and will build on the legacy created by Dean Yeh."

Manoa Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Neal Smatresk, said, "Dr. Llewellyn is an experienced administrator who has shown that he can take a unit and build it to regional and national prominence. His interests in Asia and his fund raising backgrounds also contributed significantly to bring in this outstanding candidate."

Outgoing Dean Raymond Yeh announced last year that he will be returning to the architecture faculty. Llewellyn‘s appointment is effective July 1, 2007.
