Changes in Humanities and Graduate Division leadership

To: UCSC Community

From: Campus Provost/Executive Vice Chancellor Alison Galloway

We have changes this spring in the leadership of the Humanities and Graduate Divisions.

I am delighted to officially welcome Humanities Dean Tyler Stovall to campus. Stovall is a historian who joins us from UC Berkeley, where he was a professor of French history and dean of the Undergraduate Division of the College of Letters and Science.

For Tyler, this appointment, which was announced previously, is a bit of a homecoming, as he spent 13 years as a faculty member in the UCSC Humanities Division. Please join me in welcoming him back to campus in this important capacity.

I also want to thank outgoing Humanities Dean Bill Ladusaw for nearly five years of dedicated and enthusiastic service as dean. Bill has served in many leadership positions at UCSC, and I will miss his wise counsel, collegiality, and good humor. I wish him well as he returns to the life of a fulltime scholar in the Linguistics Department.

Leadership of the Graduate Division is also changing as Vice Provost and Dean Tyrus Miller begins a sabbatical through the end of June. During his absence, Associate Dean Sue Carter will serve as dean on an acting basis.
A professor of physics at UCSC since 1995, Sue joined the Graduate Division in October 2014. I appreciate her willingness to take on additional responsibilities during this period; please join me in thanking her for her service.
