Senior Vice Chancellor Marsha Chandler and I are pleased to announce that, pending Regental approval, David Miller will assume the position of Acting Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, effective October 2, 2003. Professor Miller's appointment is strongly endorsed by the Academic Senate.
Professor Miller is currently the Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Planning and Resources.
