Beginning Nov. 2 and continuing until Nov. 15, campus will conduct final in-person interviews in the search for the Vice Chancellor for Finance, Operations and Administration. Campus leadership invites all in the UC Santa Cruz community to participate in the process and to provide feedback on the four finalists.

Each finalist will be on campus for two days, meeting with campus constituencies. During their visit, each finalist will give a 30- to 40-minute public town-hall talk, which will be followed by a 40- to 50-minute moderated Q&A. Remote attendees will be able to ask questions in real time via chat. All UCSC faculty, staff and students are invited to attend these talks. 

Students are also invited to attend a 50-minute student-only lunch meeting with each finalist. Attendees must RSVP to attend a lunch session. 

The name and details of each finalist will be released one week prior to their two-day interview. This information can be found online. You will need to be signed in to your UCSC account to access this information.
