Chico State has a new president.

Dr. Gayle E. Hutchinson was announced as president of Chico State earlier this morning at the CSU Board of Trustees meeting in Long Beach.

President-select Hutchinson taught as a professor at Chico State from 1990-2007 and served as chair of the department of Kinesiology from 2002-2007.

“I think that Gayle is a really excellent leader and I think that she makes everyone around her be better and be their best,” said Kinesiology lecturer, Josie Blagrave.

Dr. Hutchinson will be replacing current president Paul Zingg. Zingg will step down in June after serving as the president of Chico State since 2004.

“I don’t think that there’s any advantage to the department of kinesiology by having her as president but I think there’s an advantage to the whole University,” said Kinesiology professor, Katherine Himberg.
