Our membership includes institutions in 14 western United States, three Canadian Provinces, Mexico and other Pacific Rim nations.

Timothy White

Chancellor, California State University

Dr. Timothy P. White is Chancellor of the California State University, one of the largest and most diverse systems of higher education in the United States. As Chancellor, Dr. White leads a university of 23 campuses and a global community of 484,000 students, 50,000 faculty and staff and more than 3.3 million alumni. As the seventh chancellor to lead the CSU, he is a champion of inclusive excellence and student success, and a proponent of bringing individualized education to scale through the expansion of proven best practices. The CSU is also positioned as a state and national leader in promoting and protecting federal Title IX rights, environmental sustainability and diversity, which is reflected in the CSU’s diverse campus leadership. Dr. White also leads the CSU as it embarks on an ambitious systemwide plan – Graduation Initiative 2025 – to increase graduation rates, decrease time to degree and eliminate achievement gaps for all students by recruiting more faculty, hiring more advisors and student-support staff, providing new tools and adding thousands of more classes over the next decade.

Prior to joining the CSU, Dr. White held senior academic and administrative positions at the University of Michigan, Oregon State University, University of Idaho, and at University of California campuses in Berkeley and Riverside. He deeply believes in and is a product of California’s Master Plan for Higher Education, having pursued his higher education from Diablo Valley Community College, Fresno State, California State University, East Bay and the University of California, Berkeley. Like many CSU students and alumni, he was the first in his family to attend college and earn a degree.
