HONOLULU (AP) - The Faculty Senate at the flagship campus of the University of Hawaii has voted to censure its president over his dismissal of the campus chancellor.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (https://bit.ly/1DlGlyd) reports the Faculty Senate at the University of Hawaii-Manoa voted 43-16 on Wednesday to censure UH President David Lassner over the firing two months ago of Manoa Chancellor Tom Apple.

Faculty member supporting the censure say Lassner did not consult with students or faculty before the termination.

Lassner was on the job for less than three months when he fired Apple.

Lassner says in a statement he’s disappointed in the Faculty Senate action but that he looks forward to working with its members.
