David Chin, a University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa faculty senate member, presented to ASUH regarding the faculty senate’s proposed budget plan. Chin detailed how budget issues have been affecting the College of Natural Sciences.
Chin referenced the math department in particular and said that it has experienced loss of faculty and increases class sizes. He contended that the latter leads to a worsening of the quality of learning.
“They’re simply too full for students to learn in,” Chin said. “When my college teaches more students we get absolutely no more money to do that.”
Chin broke down how UH Mānoa gets its money and outlined some of the faculty senate’s proposals. Among them was the idea of allocating utilities costs proportional to a department’s actual usage and to the square footage of shared buildings. Click here for more details.
