Kimball Named CLU President

Chris Kimball has been named the seventh president of California Lutheran University. He will begin his duties April 1. Kimball replaces the Rev. Dr. Howard Wennes, who has served as Interim President since July. Thousand Oaks resident Kimball joined the CLU administrative team as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs in 2006, after serving as Provost and Dean of the Faculty at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, where he served on the faculty and held a variety of administrative positions since 1991. During Kimball’s tenure at CLU, he has been a member of the History Department faculty. An alumnus of McGill University in Montreal, Kimball received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. “Chris is a man of integrity and a man of action,” said Bill Kane, chair of the Board of Regents. “With his distinguished career as a leader and scholar and his passion for Lutheran higher education, he embodies the academic excellence of CLU and is uniquely qualified for the tasks ahead.”
