Nearly a year after embarking on its search for the next University of Hawaii president, the Board of Regents committee charged with leading the effort has narrowed its list down to two candidates.
And as promised, the committee has made the names public.
They are David Lassner, the university’s long-serving IT executive who’s currently serving as UH’s interim president, and Francis Wiercinski, a retired lieutenant general with the U.S. Army.
Board of Regents Chair John Holzman said that students and faculty will get to hear from the candidates and provide feedback before the end of the school year.
Former UH President M.R.C. Greenwood abruptly resigned last May, a year before her contract was set to expire.
