Chancellor Search


'UCR' sign.

Following the departure of Chancellor Timothy P. White, who left UC Riverside to assume leadership of the California State University system, Jane Close Conoley, dean of UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, assumed the role of interim chancellor of UC Riverside until the appointment of a permanent successor is completed.

On December 20, 2012, University of California President Mark G. Yudof announced the appointment of an advisory committee of university faculty, staff, students, alumni and foundation representatives to help in the national search for a new chancellor to lead UC Riverside. Sherry Lansing, chair of the Board of Regents, also appointed five regents to serve.

Members of the search advisory committee

The advisory committee will be involved in recruiting, screening and conducting interviews with candidates for the position. The committee’s work will be scheduled so that candidates can be presented to President Yudof for consideration and a recommended nominee submitted to the Board of Regents, tentatively by July 2013.

The search will be assisted by David Bellshaw and Bernie Jones of the executive search firm Isaacson, Miller.
