Greenwood's goals released

By Craig Gima

The University of Hawaii Board of Regents tasked UH President M.R.C. Greenwood with oversight of the UH Manoa athletic department early this year, well before this summer’s Stevie Wonder concert debacle, according to documents released by the university and the regents today.

The documents, Greenwood’s goals for the last three academic years, are part of her annual evaluation, and were discussed in executive session at the Jan. 19 board meeting, according to the meeting’s agenda.

UH released three years of Greenwood’s goals after a Star-Advertiser article today noted that the goals were not being released and that the Office of Information Practices had ruled that the UH president’s performance expectations are a public record.

Other documents that the Star-Advertiser requested under the Freedom of Information Act, including Greenwood’s self-evaluation, have not been released.

The athletic department goal states that Greenwood will: “As necessary, in cooperation with the Board of Regents, exercise oversight of UH Manoa Athletics during leadership and conference transition.”

In January, UH Manoa was moving its football team to the Mountain West Conference from the Western Athletics Conference and other sports to the Big West Conference.

UH Manoa was also in the midst of a search for a new chancellor, and Greenwood was looking at replacing then-Athletic Director Jim Donovan, according to testimony at last month’s first meeting of the state Senate Special Committee on Accountability.

Other goals for the president during the 2011-2012 academic year included: showing progressing legislative support and fundraising, advancing the university’s excellence and reputation, hiring a new UH Manoa chancellor by May, and to “continue to build confidence in the University and its management.”

The regents evaluate Greenwood on how well she meets her goals.

In May, the regents met to discuss Greenwood’s evaluation and rated her “exceptional.”

The regents are supposed to be beginning the process of setting Greenwood’s goals for this academic year.

However that may have to wait pending the outcome of a meeting today. The regents are to discuss Greenwood’s employment contract in a closed-door meeting at 2 p.m. at the John A. Burns School of Medicine.

The meeting follows the recent contentious Senate accountability panel hearings looking into the Athletic Department’s loss of $200,000 in an apparent concert scam and the UH administration’s handling of the aftermath of the concert failure.

If the BOR directs the President to oversee athletics, then she was right in doing so. We all remember what happened to the President who refused to follow the Board's direction.

From what I heard at the senate hearings... she has failed in almost all of her stated objectives. I don't understand how the BOR can rate her performance exceptional. I would question their ability to evaluate her performance properly, whatever critria they're using can't be the stated objectives.

Greenwood's attorney says UH has to pay her one more years salary, over $400k, to let her go early? Hello, she is leaving due to her failure to meet standards, no more pay is due. She is lucky UH doesn't try a claw back. If anything has been learned, UH cannot write a contract to protect student's and taxpayer's money to save their life. Even with all their highly paid attorneys, they fail every time. How hard is it to write a contract for a period of time with no special retirement job at the end, and set standards to be met or you are fired? Pretty hard if you are UH Manoa. This Wonder Blunder is going to cost students and taxpayers in the millions of dollars. UH management and BOR have earned a vote of no confidence, time to clean house.
