Hawaii Pacific University names three presidential finalists
November 16, 2010
Hawaii Pacific University is nearing the end of its search for a new president.
The new president will take the helm of the downtown campus in July, after current President Chatt G. Wright retires. Wright is one of the longest-serving private university presidents in the United States, with 40 years of service to the school.
The three finalists are:
» Geoffrey Bannister, president of a capital investment firm and the former president of Schiller International University;
» Brian Levin-Stankevich, chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire; and
» Greg Weisenstein, president of West Chester University in Pennsylvania.
All three men will be arriving in Honolulu this and next week to meet with HPU faculty, staff, students and the board of trustees, said Rick Stepien, vice president of administration for the university.
