Reorganization of campus life unit

To: UC Santa Cruz Community

From: Interim Campus Provost/Executive Vice Chancellor Herbert Lee

I am writing to announce changes to the campus life organizational framework.

Effective January 1, Interim Dean of Students Lucy Rojas and Mary Knudtson, executive director of the Student Health Center, report to Vice Provost of Student Success Jaye Padgett, and Andrea Willer, executive director of Physical Education, Recreation & Sports, reports to Vice Chancellor of Business and Administrative Services Sarah Latham.

These changes mark the final phase of a reorganization of campus life that aligns with the establishment of the Division of Student Success. This reporting structure will improve outcomes for students, increase efficiency, and streamline operations.

Each division will work through the details of the transition over the next six months. I know our colleagues in units impacted by this decision will appreciate your patience and cooperation as they adjust to these changes.
