Apple to Manoa: My Commitment is to You, not Regents, Greenwood
Message to UH Manoa ‘ohana October 8, 2012
"Our university has been going through some rough times the past few weeks. While I believe that I have a good working relationship with the President and the Board of Regents, I want to make it clear that it is you whom I represent. I am here to advocate for the students, faculty, staff and alumni of Manoa. My commitment is to you.
"I have been going around and speaking with many of you about issues of concern here on campus, but I would like to step up the dialog. Let's continue to work together and move forward, to facilitate students finding their passion and to support research that matters.
There are so many good things happening in our UH Manoa community. Let's build on them. What do you want for the future of UH Manoa? What are your ideas for improved communication and campus unity? Please think about this in the coming days and articulate your thoughts to me at the following address: email@example.com. I will respond in a collective manner in another email soon. I believe that our greatest challenges offer us some of our greatest opportunities.
