Regents to choose new UH President today

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The University of Hawaii board of regents meets today to select a new president. The two finalists for the $375,000 a year job are interim President David Lassner and retired Lieutenant General Frank Wiercinski.

University spokeswoman Lynne Waters says unlike past presidents, the new president will not be given a long-term contract as past presidents have had.

She says the contract will be continuous and "at-will." Observers say that will allow the university to avoid costly contract buyouts. Former regents chairwoman Kitty Lagareta says a set contract creates a difficult situation when things don't work out between the university and the president.
