Video message to the UH ‘ohana

By now you’ve probably heard that the Board of Regents has selected me for the UH presidency.

I am humbled and honored by the trust being placed in me by the Board of Regents, particularly after the extensive process of internal and external forums, meetings and interviews. I pledge to continue to listen, learn and collaborate to achieve even greater excellence across the UH System as we execute on our shared vision to serve all the people of Hawaiʻi in a manner that exemplifies superb stewardship of public resources.
