Penfield Tate, a member of the CSU System Board of Governors, has stepped down citing personal reasons according to the Denver Post.
The paper reported that he is rumored to be a candidate for the Chancellor position, which oversees the three-campus system.
Tate’s tenure as a Board of Governors member began in April 2011.
â€œPenfield joined the Board the same time I did last year, and since then he has become a mentor of mine,â€ said Eric Berlinberg, President of the Associated Students of CSU in an email to the Collegian. â€œWhatever the personal reasons are for his departure, I thank him for his service to the CSU System and the students of Colorado State University, and wish him the best of luck on his future endeavors.â€
