Chancellor, Position #89064
Hilo, Hawaii

University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo (UH Hilo) seeks a strong and experienced academic
leader to serve as Chancellor. The next Chancellor will ensure UH Hiloʻs
continued excellence as an indigenous serving institution and in teaching and
scholarship in order to best serve students and the State.
UH Hilo was founded in 1947 and has carried its name since 1970. UH Hilo is a
public liberal arts and science university within the ten-campus University of
Hawaiʻi system, and offers a rigorous and engaging curriculum with opportunities
for research and hands-on learning based on the unique environment of Hawaiʻi
Island. With an enrollment fluctuating between 3,000 and 4,000 students, UH
Hilo offers approximately 50 bachelorʻs, masterʻs and doctorate degrees and
over 25 certificates in various fields of study, some of them unique in the State of
Hawaiʻi. UH Hilo is home to the only school of pharmacy in the state and a
unique doctoral program in indigenous language and culture revitalization. UH
Hilo is ranked nationally in the top 10 for student diversity among four-year public
institutions. UH Hilo plays a role in islandwide and statewide economic
development, civic engagement, and community outreach, and its location
provides a natural living laboratory for geology, astronomy, agriculture and
marine sciences. Like the UH System, UH Hilo is an indigenous serving
institution and is committed to teaching and scholarship in order to best serve
students and the state. UH Hilo is a land grant institution with many of these
attributes and therefore, can be a leader fostering innovative solutions and
approaches to solving current challenges and problems.
The Chancellor is the chief executive officer of the institution and reports to the
University of Hawaiʻi President. As an Officer of the UH System, the Chancellor is
a member of the Presidentʻs senior executive team and of the Council of
Chancellors. The Chancellor develops campus initiatives along with faculty, staff
and students, and represents and promotes campus interests to the rest of the
UH System and to all its stakeholders on the island and beyond.
The Chancellor provides both administrative and academic leadership to the
campus, and is responsible for all aspects of its operation. As the administrative
leader, the Chancellor is expected to promote a system of shared governance
that is based on the values of collegiality, transparency, and excellence. As the
academic leader, the Chancellor is expected to foster a vibrant academic climate
and support outstanding scholarship and innovation, cultivating an environment
in which effective and creative teaching, research, and outreach can flourish.
