Hawaii Independent Staff

The University of Hawaii Foundation raised $66.3 million during the 2012-13 fiscal year, which ended June 30, down slightly from last year’s fundraising totals. The nonprofit organization raises money from the private sector to benefit the university’s 10 campuses.

University of Hawaii students could see tuition rise by as much as 35 percent in the next five years. And that’s after a nearly 50 percent rise over the past five.

The University of Hawaii Board of Regents approved three executive appointments at its monthly meeting Thursday.
