Carol Christ named chancellor

After a unanimous vote by the regents in March, Carol Christ was confirmed as the 11th chancellor of UC Berkeley. In her own words, this is what the job means:

“Berkeley transformed me, as it has transformed so many of us, and it transformed my understanding of higher education. I had never been in a place of such intense intellectual vitality, with as great a sense of the consequence of its research. There seemed no field, of knowledge or endeavor, that someone on the faculty did not know profoundly — and indeed was not working to extend its understanding. And I had never been in a place so deeply committed to widening the doors to educational opportunity.”
