UH Mānoa can’t afford $500M for presidential library - Angusina Campbell, Kaleo

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s budgetary issues and need for renovations make the university unsuitable to finance the Barack Obama Presidential Library. The project is expected to cost UH Mānoa around half a billion dollars, as the Barack Obama Foundation will not sponsor the library completely, according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. While the library will increase tourism, and Obama has emotional ties to Hawaiʻi, UH Mānoa cannot afford to allocate funds toward it.
