While Paul Zingg recovers from bypass surgery, Former Humboldt State President Rollin Richmond will act in his stead.
California State University Chancellor Timothy White appointed Richmond, who previously served as Humboldt State President from 2002 to 2014. He retired from that position last summer.
It’s not yet clear how long Richmond will lead Chico State, nor for how long Zingg will be recovering.
Chico State officials have not commented on Zingg’s condition — only that this last weekend’s bypass will leave him needing some time to recuperate.
