OFFICE OF THE SENIOR VICE CHANCELLOR -
December 3, 2007
ALL ACADEMIC AND INSTRUCTIONAL STAFF
After 41 years of exceptionally distinguished service to the University of California, David R. Miller, Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Planning and Resources (AVC-AP&R) will step down from his position effective, March 31, 2008. Although AVC Miller retired in December 2006, he was immediately recalled to assist with the transition to new leadership in Academic Affairs, for which I am enormously grateful. A campus-wide search for his successor is now commencing, and I am pleased to invite applications and nominations for this position.
The Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Planning and Resources serves as a senior advisor to the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and is responsible for planning and overseeing the implementation of new campus academic programs and initiatives, providing leadership in the planning of resources to meet programmatic and capital program goals, developing the State Capital Improvement Plan, and overseeing the use of technology-enhanced instruction. The AVC-AP&R is responsible for promoting an environment in which maintaining the highest standards of ethical conduct is understood to be a primary responsibility.
In order to qualify for the position of AVC-AP&R, a candidate must hold a tenured appointment in one of UCSD's academic departments. The AVC-AP&R will be appointed for a five-year term, renewable following appropriate review. While this has been a full-time position, the percentage of time and appointment date are open to negotiation.
If you would like to apply for this position, please send a statement of interest via electronic mail to Senior Vice Chancellor Drake (email@example.com). If you would like to nominate someone, please send your nomination to the email address above. You need not contact the individual to ascertain whether he or she is willing to be considered as a candidate. All nominees will be contacted, in confidence to discuss their willingness to have their names put forward for consideration.
Nominations and applications received by Friday, January 25, 2008 will receive full consideration.
