Chancellor White receives CUCSA Outstanding Leader Award
Chancellor Timothy P. White accepted an award recognizing him for being a strong supporter and advocate for staff during a recent meeting of UC Riverside’s Staff Assembly.
White is the recipient of the inaugural Outstanding Senior Leader Award, presented by the Council of the University of California Staff Assemblies (CUCSA). The award is designed to recognize senior level leaders who are supportive and inclusive of UC staff and encourage equity, diversity and community.
Ravinder Singh, UCOP research analyst and CUCSA chair-elect, traveled to UC Riverside from Oakland to present the surprise award to White.
Singh said CUCSA received nominations from several UC locations but, after discussion and a vote of the 2010–11 CUCSA delegation, White emerged as the strongest candidate.
“When we told President Yudof about our choice he said, ‘You could not have picked a finer advocate,’” Singh said.
