Our Chancellor Goes Undercover

Our Chancellor Goes Undercover

Our Chancellor Goes Undercover

The mission was impossible. Take the head of a public research university and hide him in plain sight for a week. But the University of California, Riverside accomplished it at the request of the hit CBS reality show "Undercover Boss."

Chancellor Timothy P. White, who has served as UC Riverside's highly-visible chief executive for the past three years, crops his hair short and dons a mustache, false teeth, and earring in a show that lets him take on the everyday work of the students, staff and faculty at the 20,000-student campus. In the process, he said, he was changed as a chancellor.

Chancellor White took on a new identity under the name "Pete". You can tell, he had a lot of fun playing his new character too. On the show, you'll see a clip of our Library student employee teaching him how to shelve books in the library. We promise, it's hilarious!

Be sure to tune in and watch Undercover Boss on Sunday, May 1st, 9pm PDT.
