The Board of Regents approved a new leadership structure for the UH Mānoa effective April 1, 2019. This was Phase 1 of a new structure in which the president and chancellor positions were recombined into a single position that serves as CEO of both the UH system and Mānoa. In addition, a new provost position was created to serve as the full chief academic officer with full responsibility for education, research and student success across all academic units. The provost serves as a deputy to the president in leading UH Mānoa, and an officer of the UH System.
With this approval, Phase 2 of the Mānoa reorganization is underway which will further define the leadership, concepts and functional statements for the campus.
