In the spirit of transparency, the University of Hawaiʻi Board of Regents’ special meeting and interview with each of the UH presidential finalists will be open to the public. The meeting starts at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 27 at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa’s IT Building.  


A specially designated location behind the audience so as not to obstruct their view will be reserved for cameras.  A video screen will be set up so the audience and media will be able to view the finalists as they speak during the meeting.


Photographers and reporters will be responsible for setting up their own audio equipment before the start of the meeting. A table at which the finalists will speak will be provided for microphones.
