Former University of Hawaii President M.R.C. Greenwood announced today that she plans to retire at the end of this month.

Greenwood, who resigned from the presidency in August 2013, a year before her contract was set to expire, has been on unpaid leave from her School of Medicine faculty position since then.

Greenwood had indicated upon her resignation that she intended to resume her professorship at the medical school, but in a statement today she said that she’s decided to pursue her writing and policy interests on the mainland.
