"Innovation is central to the success of higher education in general in America."
— Chris Callahan, The Record, Nov. 22, 2019
Examples of how University of the Pacific was represented in the news media in recent days:
“Pacific names ‘truly visionary’ president,” The Record, Nov. 22, 2019: Chris Callahan, Board of Regents Chair Kevin Huber, and professors Rick Hutley and James Hetrick were quoted in The Record’s front-page story announcing that Callahan had been named Pacific’s next president. “Innovation is central to the success of higher education in general in America,” Callahan told The Record. “Honestly, traditionally, higher education, most universities have been very change resistant. They’ve been slow and we’re in an era now where slow is not going to work. … Some people say we want to be collaborative and therefore you can’t move quickly, you can’t be nimble. I utterly reject that. You can do both. We’ve done both.” News outlets in California and Arizona covered the story:
