2011-12 Chancellor Search
The Colorado State University System Board of Governors has established a search committee to conduct a national search for a new Chancellor of the three-campus Colorado State University System.
Joe Blake stepped down from the position of chancellor on Dec. 31, 2011, to work for the CSU System as an advocate for donor and alumni relations and teaching. An interim chancellor has not been appointed.
The chancellor of the CSU System represents all campuses with the legislature, the Colorado Commission on Higher Education, donors, and private and public sectors. CSU is an outstanding university system serving the state in economic development with our renewable and clean energy technologies, in water and forest conservation, in educating a growing Hispanic population, in providing entertainment through arts and humanities and in addressing health care needs.
The Board of Governors knows the importance and impact a strong leader can have in directing a premier academic and research university system. We are committed to a search that will result in a proven leader who will embrace the incredible future of this outstanding university system and work diligently to promote CSU’s widespread contributions to the state of Colorado and the world.
