Chancellor Transition

California State University Trustees Appoint Timothy P. White as Seventh Chancellor

The California State University Board of Trustees named Timothy P. White, chancellor of the University of California, Riverside, as the seventh chancellor to lead the 23 campus CSU system, the largest four-year public higher education system in the country.

White, 63, has served as UCR Chancellor since 2008 and was among the finalists for the position to succeed Chancellor Charles B. Reed who announced his retirement following a 14-year tenure with the system.

“I am humbled to have been chosen to lead the California State University system at such a transformative time," said White. "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."
