Cal State University leaders name Timothy P. White as new chancellor

California State University trustees have selected a new chancellor to lead the
nation’s largest public university system during challenging fiscal times.

Timothy P. White, chancellor of the University of California, Riverside, is
expected to assume duties as the new chancellor at the end of December,
replacing outgoing Chancellor Charles B. Reed. The 70-year-old Reed in May
announced his plans to retire after 14 years as leader of the 23-campus system.

White, 63, became the eighth chancellor of UC Riverside in 2008 after serving
as president of the University of Idaho.

In a news conference on Thursday, CSU leaders said White has the skills and
experience to lead the system in a tough time of admissions cuts, tuition hikes
and unprecedented losses in state funding.
