Inauguration of Timothy P. White: Bill Emmerson


I’m Bill Emmerson, representing the
State of California today. As we gather to honor the inauguration of
Dr. Timothy White as University of California’s eighth chancellor. To say that I am honored to greet you is an understatement. California is home to some of the nations’ brightest minds and innovative leaders. It is a testament to Chancellor White’s
tremendous accomplishments that the University of California selected him to lead UC Riverside
at this time of great change. I know that Tim views these
challenging times, not as an obstacle, but as an
opportunity to lead UCR to its rightful place as one of our
nation’s premier universities. With appointments to prestigious
institutions, like the University of Michigan and the University of
California, Berkeley, funded research projects with
the National Institute of Health and published works on muscle
plasticity, injury and aging Dr. White is recognized internationally
for his work, his intellect and his leadership. You need look no further than Chancellor
White’s last assignment, as president of the University of Idaho, to witness
his steady had and superior leadership. Navigating successful resolutions to some
very controversial issues, Tim restored stability and respect to
Idaho’s flagship research university. I can’t wait to see what he does for the
University of California, Riverside. I applaud the Regents of the University of
California for selecting someone so qualified to lead UC Riverside in its quest to become a world
class, global research university. Chancellor White, our community is
lucky to have you. Good luck and godspeed.
