Former vice chancellor of planning and budget at UC Riverside, Regent Maria Anguiano, is the  new vice chair of the UC Board of Regents. Regent Janet Reilly is the new chair. 

Both were selected for their leadership roles by their fellow Regents and will serve one-year terms starting July 1.

Anguiano is the executive vice president of Arizona State University’s Learning Enterprise, a global education program focused on lifelong learning. Previously, Anguiano served in several roles at the University of California, including vice chancellor of planning and budget at UC Riverside, and worked on key systemwide financial and strategic initiatives at the Office of the President. 

“As a first-generation student, I have personally experienced the transformative power of higher education, which serves as a beacon of economic and social mobility for students, changing lives for generations,” said Anguiano. “In my role as vice chair of the Board of Regents, I am eager to collaborate across UC to explore innovative ways to increase access for the Californians we serve and provide opportunities to the state’s diverse community. I am excited to leverage my first-hand experience at UCOP and UC Riverside, along with my passion for advancing excellence in education, to ensure that the University of California continues to successfully fulfill its unique mission of serving society as a center of higher learning.”
