Chancellor’s Leadership and Development Council will assist the chancellor on campus strategy and resource development.
University of Hawai‘i at Hilo Chancellor Donald Straney’s newly formed advisory council met for the first time yesterday.
“I am putting together a UH Hilo Chancellor’s Leadership and Development Council to assist me on campus strategy and resource development,” says the chancellor.
The council, made up of over 30 community and business leaders, will meet twice a year. They are charged to become informed advocates for the campus; support the educational and outreach mission of UH Hilo; enhance the lines of communication between the campus and various external constituencies; and provide advice and counsel. Participation in the council will be for a two-year period.
The first meeting of the council was held on Nov. 1 at ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center. The chancellor gave a presentation covering a general overview of the campus. PBR Hawaii & Associates, Inc., and Design Partners, Inc. gave a presentation on UH Hilo’s Long Range Development Plan. The council also looked at the requirements needed for Hilo to become a true “university town.”
“The input that the council and other community leaders can provide will be critical to our future,” says Chancellor Straney.
