Chancellor Kim A. Wilcox

Kim A. Wilcox was appointed as the ninth chancellor of the University of California, Riverside by the UC Board of Regents on August 8, 2013.

Selected by UC President Mark G. Yudof after a nationwide search, Chancellor Wilcox succeeds Chancellor Timothy White, who left the post in late 2012 to become president of the California State University system. Jane Close Conoley, dean of the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education at UC Santa Barbara, served as UC Riverside interim chancellor for the seven months prior to his appointment.

A first-generation college graduate, Wilcox becomes chancellor during an exciting time on the UCR campus, with the opening of its new medical school, the announcement of a new school of public policy, expanding research opportunities and the potential to broaden the campus’s international reach.

As provost of Michigan State from 2005 to July 2013, Wilcox had oversight responsibilities for more than 200 academic programs, nearly 49,000 students and almost 5,000 faculty and academic staff. During that time, he implemented major institutional restructuring and strategic positioning initiatives, and helped lead a capital campaign that raised $1.4 billion. He added 100 new faculty positions, expanded the university’s two medical colleges and created the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities and the College of Music. Previously, he was dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Kansas, from 2002 to 2005, and president and chief executive officer of the Kansas Board of Regents from 1999 to 2002.
