UC Davis

Longtime UCLA chief to speak about UC’s past, future

By From page A18 | September 29, 2013

Charles Young , UCLA’s chancellor for almost three decades, will speak about “The University of California: Past, Present and Future” on Tuesday at 4 p.m. in the Mondavi Center’s Vanderhoef Studio Theatre.

Young’s talk will kick off this school year’s Chancellor’s Colloquium Distinguished Speaker Series.

A graduate of UC Riverside and UCLA, Young served as a member of UC President Clark Kerr’s staff, participating  in the creation of the Master Plan for Higher Education in California and the University Growth Plan in 1959. He was a 36-year-old political science professor when he was named chancellor.

When he stepped down in 1997, he was the longest-serving college leader in the country, and had guided a regional college with a budget of $170 million into a world-class university with an annual budget of $2 billion.

He later served as president of the University of Florida, from 1999 to 2003.
