Loren Baritz, 1982

Loren Baritz served as Chancellor for several months in 1982, prior to the arrival of Joseph Duffey.  During that time, he established the Office of Human Relations and wrote a new strategic plan which included the improvement of affirmative action policies.

A historian, Baritz has written about the Vietnam war and its roots in American culture.
