Berry said most of his professional career has been at public institutions.He said he'd like to lead a diverse campus like Stanislaus, which is involved in the community.At Butler, he said, the goal has been to increase diversity and involvement in the city of Indianapolis.
"All of that is interesting and exciting to me," he said.
California is also appealing, he said.
"A lot of things happen in the United States that happen in California 10 years earlier.That's exciting."
Berry said he helped Butler earn its re-accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission, increase diversity of the university's faculty, and increase the number of women in administrative positions.
He said he also helped turn a budget deficit into a surplus for the past three years, and he's in the late stages of developing a new core curriculum.Berry said he also has been instrumental in bringing technology to the campus, such as ensuring that all classrooms at Butler are equipped to handle computers.
Shirvani, himself a first-generation college student from Persia, said he'd like to work at a campus like Stanislaus that serves so many first-generation students.
"I think Stanislaus has enormous potential for growth and development," he said."I think I can make a significant contribution."
As provost the past five years, Shirvani said he helped take Chapman to "another level," helping to develop a plan for the intellectual direction of the campus, and a revised general education program.He also said he increased faculty salaries 4 percent per year for the past five years.
