ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (including UCSD Medical Center)
I am pleased to announce that Julianne J. Larsen (Juli) has agreed to serve as Interim Associate Vice Chancellor for University Development while a national search for Rebecca Newman's successor is undertaken. In her capacity as Senior Executive Director of Development, Juli has overseen the General Campus development program for the past four years, working in close collaboration with deans and directors of ten units, including Arts & Humanities, Biological Sciences, International Relations/Pacific Studies, Jacobs School of Engineering, Physical Sciences, Rady School of Management, Social Sciences, Student Affairs, University Libraries, and the Preuss School. Juli played a key role in the success of UCSD's $1 billion campaign, completed in June of 2007.
Juli has over 25 years of development and external relations experience, including raising significant major gifts during campaigns, developing marketing strategies to launch new programs, and working closely with senior level volunteers. She has been instrumental in building strong development programs in higher education and I am grateful for Juli's willingness to serve in this interim capacity.
