  • Ronald Cambra Awarded State Manager of the Year

    UH Manoa Assistant Vice Chancellor for Undergraduate Education Ron Cambra was named state manager of the year on Friday, May 17 at the Governor’s Awards Ceremony at the State Capitol. “Public employees have consistently made important contributions to our continuing efforts to improve the efficiency and quality of government services,” said Gov. Ige. “We are honored to work with such dedicated individuals and we appreciate all that they do each and every day.” Having dedicated over 40 years of service to the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa, Dr. Cambra championed four campus-wide initiatives that guide students toward completing their degrees within four years. He manages the overall operations and resources for undergraduate programs, and was an early champion for a number of highly successful initiatives—the STAR degree tracking program, 15 to Finish, and mandatory advising. Cambra has helped with streamlining processes and worked to increase the four-year graduation rate from 16 percent to 32 percent. UH Manoa has been nationally recognized for its success in degree completion projects.
