Dr. Michael Drake: In his own words
In mid-August, Dr. Michael Drake will officially become the 21st president of the world-renowned University of California, a place he calls ‘the most impactful public research university in the world.’
In a livestreamed conversation with UC Board of Regents Chair John Perez on July 10, Drake talked about the values and experience he brings to the university and what he sees as the key challenges ahead.
He also shared personal reflections on how attending UC changed his life, his lifelong efforts to promote equity and inclusion, and his passion for music – including his membership as a board member for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
