Plan for Review of the University of Hawaii Cancer Center

From Office of the Chancellor, UH Manoa, September 16, 2014

This review will focus on how to ensure that the UH Cancer Center can contribute to the fight against cancer and improved health care in Hawaii. The review will be undertaken by the UH Research Advisory Board (RAB), a systemwide advisory group formed last year to provide advice to the VPRI aimed at facilitating the success of the UH research enterprise. The membership of the RAB is listed at: LINK  As appropriate, the Office of the VPRI may supplement the RAB with specialized internal and external resources and expertise.

The review shall consider the UHCC mission and performance to date in assessing the financial resources, human resources, facilities, policies, practices and management capabilities currently in place and necessary to ensure the future success of the Cancer Center in its mission to serve Hawaii. The review shall clarify and identify the requirements for near-term renewal and long-term designation as an NCI Cancer Center.

Input already provided to the Board of Regents regarding the review be considered; and Cancer Center faculty, administrators and staff shall be consulted as well as community stakeholders and the UHCC External Advisory Board. In conducting its review, the RAB shall be provided with access to all relevant Cancer Center financial and performance data and shall consider relevant NIH/NCI guidelines and requirements.

A report shall be provided to the UH Manoa Chancellor, UH Manoa Vice Chancellor for Research and UH System President by the end of the calendar year.
