UC president plans to step down

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO – University of California President Robert C. Dynes announced plans Monday to step down, ending a tenure in which he overcame budget troubles but also endured criticism for millions in perks given to administrators while student fees were being raised. Dynes said his tenure as head of the renowned public university system, which began in October 2003, will end in June 2008. His decision was motivated by a desire to spend time with his wife, whom he married in March, and by a feeling that he’d accomplished what he could in the five-year time span he set for himself when he took the job, Dynes said at a press conference Monday. He was not pressured to leave because of the controversy over executive pay that clouded the last year of his tenure, he said. “I chose not to leave in the middle of that until we got it resolved,” he said. “I feel we’ve come through that.” A well-known physicist before heading up the 10-campus system, Dynes plans to renew his focus on superconductivity research. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
