Janet Napolitano will be the first female president of the University of California.

The University of California Board of Regents on July 18, 2013 appointed Janet Napolitano, secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and a two-term governor of Arizona, as the 20th president of the University of California. Napolitano begins her tenure in late September as the first female president in UC's 145-year history. She will oversee 10 campuses and five medical centers — plus a new medical school at UC Riverside — as well as three affiliated national laboratories and a statewide agriculture and natural resources program.
"I am humbled by your support and look forward to working with you to build further on the excellence of UC," Napolitano said after the regents appointed her president.
