SAP year-end update

To: UC Santa Cruz Community

From: Acting Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Lori Kletzer

Over the course of the past year, our community's input and feedback has helped shape our Strategic Academic Plan. We are extremely grateful for everyone's — especially the Academic Senate's — engagement, thoughtful contributions, and recommendations with this critical project.

I am excited that we will soon be welcoming Cynthia Larive to UC Santa Cruz as our next chancellor. During a recent one-day visit to campus to meet briefly with campus leadership, she expressed interest in getting involved in the strategic academic planning effort, which has been underway for nearly two years. I anticipate that once she arrives, Cynthia will want to take some time to identify how she would like to move forward with the SAP implementation. As a result, I expect distribution of the final plan will be delayed by a few months.

As always, we welcome any questions you might have; please feel free to contact us via email at
