(Sept. 15, 2004) – Murray Galinson, chair of the California State University Board of Trustees, today appointed three trustees to the Trustees Committee for the Selection of the President of CSU Stanislaus.

Current CSU Stanislaus President Marvalene Hughes is ending her university service in June 2005.

The three trustees are Debra Farar, who will serve as committee chair, Herb Carter and Carol Chandler. Galinson will also serve on the committee, as will CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed.

The Trustees Committee will be assisted in the search by the Advisory Committee to the Trustees Committee for the Selection of the President. Members of that group include the chair of the campus Academic Senate; two additional faculty representatives; one member of the campus support staff; one student; one member of the campus Advisory Board; one alumnus/alumna; and one vice president or academic dean from the campus. The various representative groups will select the above-named members. Chancellor Reed will also select the president of another CSU campus to serve on the committee.

The search process will begin in October and take approximately five months. A new president will be named in the spring.

Current President Hughes will have completed 11 years as president of CSU Stanislaus when she retires in June.
