UCSB's Conoley Selected as UCR Interim Chancellor

UCSB’s Dean of the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, Jane Close Conoley, was appointed acting chancellor of UC Riverside by the UC Board of Regents. Conoley will take over the position on Dec. 31 after current chancellor Timothy White steps down to become the chancellor of the entire California State University system. Conoley plans to serve as chancellor of UC Riverside until a permanent replacement for White is found, at which point she will return to her post as dean of the Gevirtz School. “Jane Close Conoley has long been a nationally recognized education expert, and she is a treasured member of the UC community,” UC President Mark G. Yudof said. “With her serving in this interim role, I am confident that the Riverside campus will keep moving forward on several fronts, especially student success.” Read more.
