The following statement was released by University of Hawaiʻi President M.R.C. Greenwood on the ratification results released today by the University of Hawaiʻi Professional Assembly:
"I thank the faculty for ratifying this important agreement. It is a necessary step to financial stability for the University of Hawaiʻi System. This financial crisis has resulted in a greater demand on our public education system. Our enrollment increased over eight percent last year. We look forward to working together with our faculty to advocate for the University of Hawaiʻi, with the message that investing in higher education today is critical to the state's economy and its future."
