This is a very happy day for the university. Governor Neil Abercrombie, the University of Hawaiʻi Professional Assembly (UHPA) and UH announced a tentative two-year agreement for UH faculty at a news conference at the governor’s office.
The tentative two-year agreement is unprecedented in that a public sector contract agreement has never before been reached a year in advance.
For the university, this provides stability, an understanding of the financial commitments, but also understanding that we’re working together with our faculty to advance this institution.

We all worked together to come to an agreement that I think everyone is really quite pleased with, and we’re looking forward to support from the state legislature.
