This piece has been updated with information from a statement by UC Riverside Chancellor Kim Wilcox and a statement by the University of California Office of the President.

Gov. Jerry Brown announced the appointment of four new members to the University of California Board of Regents in a press release issued Friday afternoon.

The four appointees, Maria Anguiano, Howard “Peter” Guber, Lark Park and Ellen Tauscher, if confirmed by the state senate, will join the board of 26 voting members — 18 nominated by the governor, one student regent and seven ex-officio members. The governor’s appointees serve terms for up to 12 years.

“I believe that based on their breadth of experience and diverse backgrounds, the governor’s four new appointees will provide valuable guidance and perspective that will greatly benefit this Board,” said Regents Chair Monica Lozano in a statement issued by the University of California Office of the President. “I look forward to working with all of them on the important issues facing public higher education in California.”

Anguiano, 38, was a vice chancellor for planning and budget for UC Riverside from 2015-17. She also served as chief of staff and director of strategic initiatives at UCOP.

“Maria Anguiano brought bold, dynamic, and visionary leadership to her role as vice chancellor at the University of California, Riverside. Her nomination by Governor Brown to serve as a UC Regent is positive news for the people of California and the Inland Empire,” said UC Riverside Chancellor Kim Wilcox in an emailed statement. “I look forward to working with Maria in this new capacity and am pleased to welcome a board member who brings such a clear understanding of our mission and values.”

Guber, 75, has been the chair and chief executive officer at Mandalay Entertainment Group since 1995. Guber is also co-owner and co-executive chairman of the Golden State Warriors basketball team and an executive board member of the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.

Park, 47, previously served as a senior advisor for policy and deputy legislative affairs secretary in Gov. Brown’s office. Park is also a campus alumna, having received a bachelor of arts from UC Berkeley.

Tauscher, 65, has been a strategic advisor at Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz P.C., a national law firm and lobbying group, since 2012. She previously served as a member of the US House of Representatives, representing California’s 10th congressional district from 1997 -2009.

Brown last appointed a member to the board, regent Gareth Elliott, in January 2015.
