Statement on the passing of former California State University Chancellor Charles B. Reed
The Campaign for College Opportunity mourns the loss of former California State University Chancellor Charles B. Reed. The Campaign was honored to have worked with Chancellor Reed for nearly a decade on ensuring increased college opportunity and success for students seeking an education in the CSU system.
Chancellor Reed was a steadfast champion of fixing the broken transfer system and committed the CSU to creating a transfer pipeline for students wishing to come to the CSU from the Community College system. Reed exerted tremendous leadership in support of historic student-centered transfer reform legislation (SB 1440) and would be proud that over 69,000 new Associate Degrees for Transfer have been conferred since implementation of the historic policy.
