Cal State University Chancellor Touts Benefits of Collaboration

Dr. Timothy P. White, a CalChamber Board member and chancellor of The California State University, tells fellow Board members on February 28 that the CSU is “ahead of track” to close what had been a projected shortfall of 1.1 million students with bachelor’s degrees by 2030, according to the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC). Regional partnerships between local campuses and businesses are helping meet workforce needs in areas such as agribusiness, the wine industry, health care, physician assistants, entertainment and hospitality, he says, concluding by urging listeners to suggest new ways for business to collaborate with the CSU. White will be retiring later this year after eight years as head of CSU, the nation’s largest public university system.
