The members of the Search Committee for the position of Vice Chancellor – Student Affairs have concluded their deliberations and have provided me with the names of three finalists:
Penny Rue, Dean of Students, University of Virginia
Jean Marie Scott, Acting Vice Chancellor, Student Affairs, UC Santa Cruz
Melissa Vito, Vice Provost, Student Affairs/Dean of Students, University of Arizona
The search now enters the public phase and I encourage the campus community to participate via a series of informal open forums in which the candidates will be available to discuss their interest in the Vice Chancellor - Student Affairs position and the skills and expertise they bring to the position. Letters of interest, resumes, details of the three candidates’ visits and an email link to provide feedback to me may be found at http://www-chancellor.ucsd.edu/sacandidates.asp.
I want to thank the search committee, co-chaired by Sixth College Provost Gabriele Wienhausen, for the significant effort to complete the Committee’s work on an accelerated timeline so that the entire campus community could meet the finalists before the close of the Spring quarter.
