Wanted: New University of Hawaii Regents

Four of the six open seats require immediate appointments because the regents resigned.

·By Alia Wong

The University of Hawaii Board of Regents is running on empty now that four regents have abruptly resigned because of the new public financial disclosure law.

The university’s Candidate Advisory Council is looking for people to fill those four seats immediately — on top of the two seats whose terms are set to expire next year.

All in all, the state needs to appoint people to six seats on the 15-member board, which serves as the university’s governing body.

John Dean, who resigned his seat on the UH Board of Regents, is on the right

Who do you think would make for a good regent?
