The University of Hawaii Board of Regents voted today to make public the names of its top three presidential candidates.
Many members of the community who’ve taken an interest in the fate of the university presidency have been wondering how transparent the regents would be in their selection process.
The board also made several other clarifications to the selection procedures, including that the Presidential Selection Committee will forward to all members either five or six top candidates.
The full board will then select three people out of the five or six top choices. Those three candidates will be publicized and then invited to visit the 10 campuses and have conversations with various groups.
When exactly the selection committee will pass on their picks remains to be seen. Review of applications and nominations began about a week ago and is ongoing. Applications should be submitted by March 26.
