Concerns Over Navy Research Center

Thursday, November 10, 2005
According to AP reports, a group of faculty members wants a full review of a proposed contract for a Navy research center at the University of Hawaii. The group has released a report that says it remains unclear what kind of impact the $50 million center could have on the school and on faculty's right to publish research results. According to the report, the group’s concern with the Navy contract is its lack of explanation of the criteria the Navy would use when classifying sensitive research data on work done at the center -- a top worry for professors seeking exposure of their findings.
