Acting Chancellor withdraws from consideration for permanent chancellorship

To the UCR Community

(March 20, 2002)

Today I have asked President Richard C. Atkinson to remove my name from further consideration for UCR's chancellorship. I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone who has given me encouragement and support in this process, but I believe that this is the right decision at this time. At the time that our new Chancellor is named, I will determine how I might best serve UCR in the future - I do envision a period of teaching and research to complete my UCR career. Thank you for your understanding.

Statement of UC President Richard C. Atkinson

As a faculty member and administrator for more than three decades, David Warren has served UC Riverside with skill and distinction. While I accept his decision with respect to his candidacy for the permanent chancellorship at UCR, I look forward to his continuing contributions to the campus and to the University of California as a whole.
