Legacy Award Honoree, CSU Chancellor Timothy White, Announces Retirement

Posted by: Leadership California
Dr. Timothy White, Chancellor of the California State University (CSU), today announced his plan to retire in 2020. White has served as CSU Chancellor since 2012 and led the university’s restoration and resurgence from Great Recession-era cuts to achieve unprecedented heights for student enrollment and graduation. 

Leadership California recognized Chancellor White with its first “Legacy Champion” Award in May 2019 for his efforts to support and advance women into leadership roles within the CSU system. When he took on the role of Chancellor in 2013, just two CSU presidents were female, while women made up more than 50 percent of the student body. Today, 12 of the 23 presidents are women, and several are minorities as well. See more here.

Leadership California once again salutes Chancellor White on his significant accomplishments for the CSU and making diversity and inclusion a top priority.
