Beginning Tuesday, finalists for the position of president of the University of Hawaii System will be visiting UH campuses statewide throughout the month of May, participating in campus public forums and meetings with students, faculty and the community.
Following these visits, the Board of Regents hopes to select a president in June 2014.
Campus public forums will begin on Oahu, Tuesday, May 6 through Friday, May 9. The Oahu forums will be followed by public receptions. The Oahu forums and receptions are open to the public and will offer the opportunity to ask questions of the finalists and learn more about their background and experience.
