Search starts for new CSU chief
September 11, 2012
The new boss of the 23-campus system — one of which is Cal Poly — may be among those now being interviewed by the committee. Charles B. Reed announced in May that he would retire from the position after 14 years at the helm of America’s largest public four-year university system.
Officials said the selection could come in a month.
Reed, 70, receives an annual salary of $421,500 and a $30,000-a-year supplement from the university foundation.
Members of the selection committee have been hearing from union representatives, teachers, politicians and others about issues considered important: job criteria, salary, term limits.
“There’s no question that this is a crucial role in the scheme of things in California,” trustee William Hauck, chairman of the selection committee, said in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times.
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.
