New West Oahu chancellor Rockne Freitas


We presented a congratulatory plaque to outgoing Vice President for Student Affairs and University and Community Relations and incoming UH West Oʻahu Chancellor Rockne Freitas on May 1, his first official day in his new position.

I nominated Freitas and the Board of Regents approved the nomination this spring. He is the first Native Hawaiian to serve as chancellor of a four-year university in the state of Hawaiʻi and the nation.

Congratulations Chancellor Freitas!
