Please invite your alumni to bring a sandwich and join us on Thursday, Feb. 9th. Our speaker will be Hawaii Pacific University’s new President, John Gotanda. He’ll tell us about his vision for HPU, and answer our questions on important issues like the transition to Aloha Tower Marketplace, the sale of the Windward Oahu campus, the growing level of competition among private colleges, and more.
Born and raised in Hawai‘i, President Gotanda is a graduate of Roosevelt High School, the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa (BBA, 1984) and the William S. Richardson School of Law (J.D., 1987), where he was Editor-in-Chief of the University of Hawai‘i Law Review.

Following law school, John was a staff attorney with the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He then worked as an associate attorney with Covington & Burling in Washington, D.C., and later with Goodwin, Procter & Hoar in Boston. He joined the faculty at Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law in 1994, where he served as Professor of Law, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Associate Dean for Faculty Research, and Director of the J.D./M.B.A. Program, and since 2011 as Dean of the Law School.
