College chancellor will shift to new post
Leeward Community College Chancellor Peter Quigley will leave his position to take a new job with the University of Hawaii at Manoa as assistant vice chancellor for academic affairs, according to a UH news release.
Quigley has been chancellor since May. He came to Leeward Community College in 2004 as dean of instruction from Minnesota State University, where he was dean of the College of Arts and Humanities.
Quigley said he sees the move as an opportunity to serve the greater population of Hawaii and to support the university in a different capacity.
"Although much has been accomplished, there is still a lot of unfinished business at hand," he said through a news release. "But the direction has been set and there is a clear road map in place. I am hopeful that the new administration will continue the positive momentum that has been established by Leeward Community College."
The university expects to name an interim chancellor shortly. Quigley will continue as chancellor until his interim replacement is named.
Quigley made $148,248 as Leeward chancellor. The UH-Manoa position pays $140,016, according to a university spokeswoman.
