Chancellor Search Update


The CSU Board of Trustees continues the search for the university's next chancellor to succeed Timothy P. White.

​​​​The California State University Board of Trustees continues the search for the university's next chancellor to succeed Timothy P. White, who announced his intent to retire at the end of the 2019-20 academic year.

The Trustees convened a series of open forums across the state and have already received a great deal of important feedback from all those who attended or who shared input in other ways.

Based on feedback and suggestions submitted thus far, an opportunity and challenge profile has been created, along with the final position description. Both can be viewed on the Chancellor’s Recruitment website.

The Special Committee to Consider the Selection of the Chancellor and the Stakeholder Advisory Committee continue to seek feedback from all interested stakeholders. This can be shared by submitting comments to the committees, by completing a fact-finding questionnaire or by offering a nomination​all through the Chancellor’s Recruitment website​.

This is an extremely vital endeavor and the CSU community is encouraged to continue to share suggestions about the knowledge, skills and abilities required in the next CSU chancellor. ​
