The University of Hawaii at Manoa has identified three finalists for the position of dean and The Queen’s Health Systems Professorship for the Nancy Atmospera-Walch School of Nursing (NAWSON).
The three finalists are each scheduled for virtual visits over a two-day period which includes meetings with senior administrators, faculty, staff, students, and internal and external constituents, and a public presentation.
The decision to meet with the finalists virtually was made to protect the health and welfare of the UH community, community members and the general public. The candidates will participate from their home institutions with each session hosted by UH/NAWSON.
Campus and community members, as well as the general public, are encouraged to attend the public presentations. Zoom information for the public presentations may be found here.

“The search advisory committee did a terrific job in identifying these three finalists and I would like to thank them for their time, hard work and commitment to the search process. This is an impressive pool of finalists and we are fortunate to be able to conduct this visit virtually with campus and community constituents as part of the effort in finding the next dean for the nursing school,” said Provost Michael Bruno. “As always, we encourage UH faculty, staff, students and the public to participate and meet the candidates, and we look forward to receiving their feedback.”
Following the visits and review of the feedback from the search advisory committee and others, Bruno will be making a recommendation on this appointment to President David Lassner.
