Regents Confirm Gary May as UC Davis Chancellor

UC Davis has its seventh chancellor, Gary S. May, engineering dean at the Georgia Institute of Technology, confirmed by unanimous vote of the Board of Regents at a special meeting at midafternoon today (Feb. 23). The meeting took place at UCLA and at other locations by teleconference.

“I hope that during my tenure as chancellor at Davis (that) we can come to accept some of the daily habits, the precepts that I try to apply in my own life, and that’s that every day I want to learn something, I want to help somebody and I want to make the world better, and I hope that’s what we’ll do at Davis,” May told the regents after the vote. He concluded his remarks by saying, “Go Ags!”
