Oh! Oh! Another opportunity to make more "babies" with knowing how to support and nurture it. Meanwhile, the existing campuses rot in need of repair and maintenance. Why it is fun to "make new babies", why worry about quality, long term need, operational costs, etc. for that is for the next BOR. And for McClain....aaah it would be off his shoulders as he sits and collect his new faculty salary of over $250k and make choices on whether he will seek the presidency at another campus. It is musical chair all over, pass the bug to another!

This change could create a reorganization struggle and conflict for the Maui campus(es) that dogged Hawaii Community College and UH-Hilo in the 1970s and 1980s.

This move comes at the same time approval is pending for the new 14 story telescope to be built atop Haleakala which many local are not in favor of. Part of the mitagating factors offered to get approval were training of locals at MCC for jobs in science etc at the new telecope area etc. Sounds related

Lunacy in the making AGAIN. UH can barely afford its own existing programs and now a whole new system is being created. This is nothing but administrative pork being added time and again. I don't know how these people even have a clear conscience at the end of the day.
