Richard Leib assumes chair of the Board of Regents duties
On March 1, University of California Regent Richard Leib assumed the duties and responsibilities of the Chair of the Board. He succeeds Cecilia V. Estolano.
“As we emerge from the pandemic, this is a particularly critical time for the University and for the state itself,” Leib said. “UC has an important role to play in helping California rebound. Public investments in UC pay dividends that benefit the entire state. I look forward to working with leaders across California to strengthen UC’s ability to change lives and make a difference in our communities.”
“Regent Leib cares deeply about the University, our students, and our broad mission to serve the state,” said UC President Michael V. Drake, M.D. “We are lucky to have him leading the board at this critical time, and I look forward to continuing our work together to advance UC’s mission.”
