Linda Williams served as my Associate Chancellor and Senior Advisor during my term as the Chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley. She was a trailblazer in her own right as the first African American woman in history to serve in the Chancellor’s cabinet at Berkeley. She was highly respected campuswide for her many accomplishments in this role including especially her skill in guiding campus leadership in supporting historically disadvantaged communities.”

Chancellor Emeritus

University of California, Berkeley

Linda worked as my right hand person during my Chancellorship at the University of California San Diego (1996-2003) and Presidency of the University of California system (2003-2008). During those periods I relied on her as my eyes behind my back and most trusted advisor. She developed great rapport with students, faculty, and administration and brought issues and advice to me. She has a remarkable ability to comprehend the complex dynamics of a large university and bring solutions to perplexing and multi-dimensional problems.
