California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White today made the following statement in response to University of California President Mark Yudof’s announcement on ending his tenure as head of the UC system.

“Mark has been a strong and principled leader of higher education in one of the state’s most challenging eras, and I am very grateful to have worked side by side with him during my time as chancellor of UC Riverside. Frankly, I was looking forward to building on our relationship as system head colleagues, but wish nothing but the best for Mark and his family in the next chapter of his life. Throughout his tenure, Mark has always maintained his commitment to protecting the quality of the institution and to doing everything he can to ensure student success, the vibrancy of research and creative activity, and the robustness of healthcare. His lasting legacy will continue, and as head of the CSU system, I look forward to partnering with UC in the years to come.”
