On behalf of the search committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to meet the two final candidates for the position of Vice Chancellor Planning and Budget. The finalists are scheduled to interview at UCSC as follows:

. July 26: James B. Rimpau, Vice President for Planning and Chief Information Officer, Montana State University

. July 27: Margaret L. (Peggy) Delaney, Interim Vice Chancellor, Planning and Budget, UC Santa Cruz

Each finalist will participate in a 75-minute "Meet the Candidate" session open to the campus community. They have been asked to introduce themselves and discuss how Planning and Budget will help shape the future of the campus.

Each public session will take place from 3:30-4:45 p.m. in the Physical Sciences Building Room 240. All members of the campus community are encouraged to attend these public meetings, which will include question-and-answer sessions.

If you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at mdoyle1@ucsc.edu or Special Assistant to the CP/EVC Linda Kittle, who is serving as staff to the Search Committee, at kittle@ucsc.edu.

Final selection for the VCPB position is expected late this summer.
