What Goes Into a State Legislative Candidate Endorsement?

Jul 18, 2014

In Hawaii, upholding the quality of public higher education is a political process. After all, the Governor, UH administration, the UH Board of Regents, and the UH faculty are all involved in the negotiations of faculty contracts. In addition, the Hawaii State Legislature must vote to allocate funding to fulfill the obligations of ratified faculty contracts.


What Goes Into a Congressional Candidate Endorsement?

Jul 18, 2014

Policy decisions and laws on higher education made in Washington, D.C. have a direct impact on UH faculty. That’s why it is so important for UHPA to make sure those who represent us in Congress have a thorough understanding of higher education issues and the unique challenges of the University of Hawaii.
