Cal State University System Gets New Chancellor

Timothy P. White, UC Riverside's chancellor will succeed Charles B. Reed, who announced his retirement in May.

UC Riverside Chancellor Timothy P. White was named today the chancellor of the 23-campus California State University system.

White will succeed Charles B. Reed, who announced his retirement plans in May. Reed has been CSU chancellor of the Long Beach-based system for 14 years.

"I am humbled to have been chosen to lead the California State University system at such a transformative time," White said. "As chancellor, I look forward to engaging with faculty, students, staff, campus presidents and CSU trustees, along with the communities we serve, as we advance this vital system of higher education for California's future."

White, 63, has been UC Riverside's chancellor since 2008. He was president of the University of Idaho from 2004 to 2008 and previously served as a dean, provost, executive vice president and interim president of Oregon State University.

The Argentina native was a professor and chair of the Department of Human Biodynamics at UC Berkeley and a professor and chair at the Department of Movement Science and a research scientist at the Institute of Gerontology at the University of Michigan.

"Tim White's background and experience reflect the institutional values and mission of the CSU," said Bob Linscheid, chairman of the CSU Board of Trustees. "His demonstrated leadership and commitment to student success are the right combination for the university's future."

They had to hire a new sucker to implement the Brown cuts after Prop 30 fails. This White was stupid to accept this job. He will have to oversee the rioting. Hope he doesn't park his car in the faculty parking lot. He will be needed new tires and a pain job very soon.

Follow Cal.? Loose touch with Californians Chancellor White CSU. The public’s University of California harvests family savings, Alumni donations. Cal. ranked #1 public university total academic cost (resident) as a result of the Provost’s, Chancellor’s ‘charge resident’s higher tuition’. UCB tuition is rising faster than other universities. Cal ranked # 2 nationally in faculty earning potential. Spending on salaries increased 29% in last six years. Believe it: Harvard College less costly. University of California negates promise of equality of opportunity: access, affordability. Self-absorbed Provost Breslauer Chancellor Birgeneau are outspoken on Cal. ‘charging residents much higher’ tuition. Birgeneau ($450,000) Breslauer ($306,000) like to blame the politicians, since they stopped giving them their entitled funding. The Cal. ‘charge instate students higher tuition’ skyrocketed fees by an average 14% per year from 2006 to 2011 academic years. If they had allowed fees to rise at the same rate of inflation over past 10 years fees would still be in reach of middle income students. Breslauer Birgeneau increase disparities in higher education, defeat the promise of equality of opportunity, and create a less-educated work force. Additional state tax funding must sunset. Prop 30, 32, 38.
