Chancellor Emeritus Charles B. Runnels - Pepperdine University

Pepperdine University Mourns the Loss of Chancellor Emeritus Charles B. Runnels

Charles B. Runnels, chancellor emeritus of Pepperdine University, passed away on October 25, 2016. He was 91.

Runnels was first introduced to Pepperdine in 1967 to help search for a new campus for George Pepperdine College—joining the site selection committee that ultimately chose a Pacific panorama from 40 possible venues. The two-year assignment turned into a permanent calling, and Runnels became an integral part of the construction plans of the new campus in Malibu.
