Ron Coley, Vice Chancellor at UC Riverside, retired this past year.
Coley joined UC Riverside in 2014. Prior to that, he served UC Berkeley as an associate Vice Chancellor since January 1998. Ron also served 20 years in the military from 1972-1992, as a Marine Corps pilot, retiring at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. During his military career, he helped the Marine Corps adjust to the changing economic environments caused by the extraordinary defense build-ups in the 1980’s and the equally drastic draw-downs in the 1990’s.
