An internationally renowned scientist and educator, she was sa 2010 recipient of the National Medal of Science, among many other honors and awards.

“During her tenure as Chancellor at UC San Diego, Marye Anne Fox has added striking breadth and depth to the university’s already sterling reputation,” said Mark Yudof, President of the University of California. “The accomplishments of her service give renewed energy and purpose to the institution, and set a visionary course for the 21st century.”

The seventh Chancellor of UC San Diego, and the first woman to be appointed as permanent Chancellor, Fox assembled a diverse senior leadership team during her tenure which saw the campus and its faculty earn Nobel and Pulitzer prizes; garner top international and national rankings for research, teaching, medicine and the arts; gain international notice of the university’s discoveries, inventions and other achievements; and merit presidential recognition for a superlative record of public service.

    University of California Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau ($500,000 salary) has forgotten that he is a public servant, steward of the public money, not overseer of his own fiefdom.

    Recruits (using California tax $) out of state, foreign $50,000 tuition students who displace qualified sons, daughters of Californians from public university
    education.
    Spends $7,000,000 + for consultants to do his & vice chancellors work

    University accrues $150 million of inefficiencies over his 8 year reign.
    Pays ex Michigan governor $300,000 for lectures.

    These are not isolated examples: it’s all shameful. There is no justification for such actions by a steward of the public trust. Absolutely none. Like with an addiction, admitting you have a problem is the first step toward correcting it.
