Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Education

The University of California, Riverside (UCR or UC Riverside) seeks a world-class academic and administrative leader to serve as the next Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Education (VPDUE). The Division of Undergraduate Education is the hub of UCR’s many student success units and initiatives, and the next VPDUE will have the opportunity to build on UCR’s reputation as a national model for equity and excellence in undergraduate education.

Reporting directly to the Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor, the VPDUE is an important campus leadership position responsible for promoting academic excellence and student success for nearly 23,000 undergraduates across more than 90 programs of study. The VPDUE oversees units and initiatives that enhance the quality of the undergraduate experience at UCR, including the University Honors Program, the University Writing Program, the Exploration Center for Innovative Teaching and Engagement (XCITE), the Academic Resource Center, the Health Professions Advising Center, a variety of undergraduate high impact practices, and the Academy of Distinguished Teachers. The VPDUE also supports the colleges and schools in various student success programs such as learning communities, community engaged learning and research, and transfer student outreach and success. In addition, the VPDUE plays a critical role in improving student retention and graduation rates, liaising with the University Innovations Alliance, developing grant programs and other pilot projects that promote student success, and working with Academic Senate leaders on a wide range of issues.

The next Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Education will build upon this strong foundation to lead UCR into a new era of continued excellence and focused growth. Working closely with the Provost/Executive Vice Chancellor and the deans of the colleges and schools, the VPDUE will collaborate with faculty, students, and staff across UCR, as well as with leaders in the UC system and in the local community, to address a set of key opportunities and challenges:

  • Chart a vision and strategy for the future of the Division of Undergraduate Education
  • Promote an educational environment that embraces academic excellence, inclusivity, diversity, and equity
  • Amplify UCR’s position as a national leader for undergraduate student success
  • Explore and promote innovative pedagogical strategies, academic support services, and co-curricular opportunities for improved student learning and success
  • Grow and manage resources for continued excellence
