Lifting of UH veil reveals more questions

By Warren Iwasa

POSTED: 02:15 p.m. HST, Oct 29, 2012

~~<p>Six hours of feisty presidential and vice presidential debates made for good television. But they were nothing like the two recent televised hearings, totaling 131&frasl;2 hours, that were held by the Senate Special Committee on Accountability. The committee sought to learn how $200,000 was so easily scammed from the University of Hawaii. Those hearings were riveting. (The videos can still be seen at: http://olelo.granicus.com/ViewPublisher.php?view_id=13)</p>
<p>The first hearing, which lasted six hours, featured testimony from President M.R.C. Greenwood. Greenwood has an exceptional academic background in biology: a bachelor of arts degree from Vassar College (summa cum laude); a Ph.D. from Rockefeller University; and postdoctoral study at Columbia University. She is, as UH-Manoa Chancellor Tom Apple reminded the senators at the second hearing, a member of the distinguished Institute of Medicine. She is a member of the country's scientific elite. Her salary as president of UH is $475,008.&nbsp;</p>
