Timothy White named next CSU Chancellor

Timothy P. White, new CSU Chancellor

The CSU Board of Trustees announced last week that the next chancellor of the CSU system will be Timothy P. White, the current chancellor of the University of California-Riverside.

CFA President Lillian Taiz, a history professor at Cal State Los Angeles, said, “We welcome the new chancellor to the California State University and look forward to a new and constructive era for public higher education in our state.

“Given Dr. White’s background in public higher education, we are hopeful that he will understand the needs of the CSU and will establish a goal of unifying everyone behind our critical educational mission, particularly during these difficult times,” she added.

The announcement came after closed meetings at the Chancellor’s Office in Long Beach.

Taiz said, “While we wish that the CSU Trustees had been more transparent in making its selection, we are, nevertheless, eager to work with the new chancellor to rebuild the California State University to serve our economy, democracy and all the people of California.”
