Mānoa Reorganization Update

The Board of Regents approved a new leadership structure for the UH Mānoa effective April 1, 2019. This was Phase 1 of a new structure in which the president and chancellor positions were recombined into a single position that serves as CEO of both the UH system and Mānoa. In addition, a new provost position was created to serve as the full chief academic officer with full responsibility for education, research and student success across all academic units. The provost serves as a deputy to the president in leading UH Mānoa, and an officer of the UH System.

With this approval, Phase 2 of the Mānoa reorganization is underway which will further define the leadership, concepts and functional statements for the campus. Five functional teams were developed, working closely with representatives from governance groups in addition to faculty, staff and administration.

This site contains information and updates regarding the Mānoa reorganization, and the new leadership and campus structure.

Current update

May 1: An update on the functional concepts and structures for the Mānoa units reporting to the President and Provost has been posted. We seek to obtain significant online feedback by May 31, 2020. Additional feedback received over the summer will also be considered. Committees will be working over the summer on a formal proposal, and all formal consultation is deferred until the beginning of the Fall 2020 semester.
