A nationwide search to replace retiring Cal State Fullerton President Jewel Plummer Cobb will be complete by next May, according to Cal State University Trustee William Campbell of Newport Beach, who has been named to chair the search committee.
Campbell said 150 to 200 candidates from throughout the nation are expected to apply for the chief executive post at Cal State Fullerton. The campus, with 25,000 students, is the sixth largest in the 20-university Cal State system.
"We are looking for somebody with the prerequisite academic background, management experience and national experience," Campbell said Thursday. "It's a wonderful job."
Cal State trustees Anthony Vitti, also of Newport Beach, and Claudia Hampton of Los Angeles also will take part in the executive search. A Cal State University president still to be named also will sit on the committee, along with Cal State Fullerton representatives from the Academic Senate, the Alumni Assn., the student government and the campus advisory board.
