The Chronicle of Higher Education. August 9, 2013. Gov. Jerry Brown of California, a Democrat who sits on the University of California’s Board of Regents, voted on Thursday to oppose the $354,000 compensation package for Kim A. Wilcox, the Riverside campus’s new chancellor.Mr. Brown voiced opposition to the compensation during a meeting at which the board voted unanimously to approve Mr. Wilcox’s appointment. The $354,000 represents a $29,000—or nearly 9 percent—increase over the pay for Riverside’s previous chancellor, Timothy P. White, who left last year to become chancellor of the California State University system. Last fall Mr. Brown also opposed a pay raisefor the Berkeley campus’s new chancellor, Nicholas B. Dirks.
