HONOLULU (AP) - The University of Hawaii-Manoa is implementing a hiring freeze to reduce spending by $10 million.
Hawaii News Now reports that as many as 70 positions will go unfilled this year.
Chancellor Tom Apple says the move will help avoid further tuition increases. This year, UH tuition increased by more than 7 percent.
Apple says the state reduced funding to the University of Hawaii by $75 million in recent years.
