UH President Greenwood gives first address

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) — New University of Hawaii President M.R.C. Greenwood says in these unprecedented times, the university must demonstrate it is a powerful agent for economic improvement.

Greenwood delivered her first address to the university community yesterday, saying there is no better investment for the future of the state than in education and the university.

She says the university system must graduate more students with the credentials needed to excel in jobs in today's as well as tomorrow's marketplace.

Greenwood says that as the only public higher education institution in the state, it's also up to the university to lead Hawaii's economic, intellectual and creative diversification and to work with businesses to create jobs for island residents.
