Cal State chancellor search committee named
Eight members of the California State University Board of Trustees will serve on the committee to select the next chancellor of the Cal State system, officials announced Tuesday.
The special committee is being chaired by trustee William Hauck and is scheduled to hold a meeting on June 28 to hear from students, faculty, staff and members of the public. The meeting is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon at the chancellor's Long Beach office.
"The purpose of the meeting is to listen to CSU constituencies and hear their views about what qualities the committee should look for in the next chancellor," Hauck said in a statement. "We are committed to having the CSU community and various stakeholders have a voice, and the committee will be seeking their input and feedback. Just as importantly, the board's responsibility is to select the very best person for the job."
Charles B. Reed, 70, announced earlier this month that he is retiring after 14 years as chancellor. He is expected to remain in his post until a replacement is named sometime this fall.
Other trustees appointed to the committee are Roberta Achtenberg, faculty trustee Bernadette Cheyne, Debra Farar, Kenneth Fong, Steven Glazer, student trustee Jillian Ruddell and board Chairman A. Robert Linscheid.
