Chancellor Dorothy Leland had her work cut out for her in 2011 when she became chancellor of UC Merced. She would be the third person to lead the six-year-old institution, the UC System's newest. Located in one of the poorest regions of the state, its goal was to expand the system's reach to more low-income, minority and first-generation students. She recently sat down with Education Dive to share the lessons she's learned over the past eight years.
