Call for Applications and Nominations – Humanities Dean, VPDUE, and VPAA

To: UCSC Academic and Staff Employees

From: Alison Galloway, Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor

UCSC has started campus-only recruitments for the positions of Dean of the Humanities Division, Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Education, and Vice Provost for Academic Affairs/Co-Chief Diversity Officer for Faculty. These are key leadership positions that play a vital role in the functioning and future of our campus, especially as we adjust to the changing financial landscape.

We seek applications from and nominations of individuals who have strong leadership skills and who are dedicated to moving the campus forward. I have appointed three search committees to assist me with these recruitments.

A website has been set up to keep the campus informed on the progress of the searches. Position announcements, position descriptions, and a list of the members of each of the search committee are posted at that site and can be accessed at

We encourage you to speak with your colleagues to help us develop a strong candidate pool for each of these important positions. The search committees welcome applications and nominations of qualified candidates. For full consideration, applications must be received by the initial review date of April 25, 2011. Nominations of qualified candidates must be received by April 11 in order to provide nominees with time to submit an application. Note: nominations are not required for application.
