SIUC Chancellor Rita Cheng

WSIU-TV senior producer Jak Tichenor hosts a half-hour interview with SIU Carbondale Chancellor Rita Cheng, who took over as leader of the University's Carbondale campus on June 1.
Chancellor Cheng, formerly Provost and Vice Chancellor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, was named to the position as SIUC Chancellor last November by SIU President Glenn Poshard, succeeding former Chancellor Sam Goldman who served as interim for just over two years.
Tichenor will discuss Chancellor Cheng's goals for her new job and the challenges facing the Carbondale campus, including student enrollment and the impact of the state's $13-billion budget crisis on all of Illinois higher education.
A licensed certified public accountant, Cheng holds a doctorate in management from Temple University and an MBA from the University of Rhode Island.
