Next UH president should have aloha   Who will be the University of Hawaii's next president?    This is an extremely difficult job for any person, local or not, to hold. There is no way around the intricate web of bureaucracy woven in such a position. And yet there should still be room to think and search outside the box, yet within the state.   Maybe we shouldn't be so impressed simply with one's resume. Maybe it is time to look more intently at the heart of the next president. What are the person's ties to our university? To Hawaii? Would the person do what it takes to provide the best, most innovative opportunities for the students, be truthful and wise about finances and fiscal responsibilities, and relate sincerely to the local culture?   I believe we can find someone here with the right qualifications, as well as with the best heart. It is worth being intentional about.    Dyne Peich Pearl City   How to write us The Star-Advertiser welcomes letters that are crisp and to the point (~150 words).
