SUBJECT: Search for Assistant Vice Chancellor-Academic Personnel
Assistant Vice Chancellor - Academic Personnel Nanette Caldararo has accepted the position of Assistant Dean in the Division of Arts and Humanities. Although the loss of Nanette's talents and counsel will be felt throughout the academic departments and in the Senior Vice Chancellor's office, I am pleased that the campus will continue to benefit from her considerable skill and experience.
A search has been initiated to select a new Assistant Vice Chancellor - Academic Personnel to assist incoming Senior Vice Chancellor Marsha Chandler as she begins her new administration. Because of the critical juncture of the arrival of Senior Vice Chancellor-designate Chandler and the importance of this position on the campus, the recruitment and selection of a successful candidate is of the highest priority for the campus.
I am inviting the campus community to assist me in identifying individuals with the experience, talent, and energy for the position. Attached is a job description. For full consideration, please forward nominations and resumes by August 1, 1997 to Pat Wong at mail code 0922, by facsimile to 822-0546, or electronically to sendcv@ucsd.edu.
