UC Riverside’s new provost, Paul D’Anieri, is holding a campus wide discussion about how to structure UC Riverside as the university moves into a time of hiring 300 new faculty members.

A conversation with the provost has been set for 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 12 in HUB 302. All are welcome.

The conversation will focus on “The Structure of the University” and D’Anieri will discuss and seek input on different options for organizing the university’s academic units, including forming a College of Arts and Science or maintaining the current arrangement. The question is one raised in the drafting of UCR’s strategic plan.

“I think the faculty will likely be most interested, but I welcome interested staff and students as well.”

D’Anieri said he is open to a wider discussion, about campus priorities. He plans to share his own thoughts and observations, developed since his arrival July 1 and informed by frequent conversations with the campus community, especially the deans and the Academic Senate.

At UCR, D’Anieri is the chief academic and operating officer for the campus, providing academic leadership to the entire university, managing day-to-day operations of the campus, overseeing resource allocation, and serving as a member of the campus leadership team.

In the Chancellor’s absence, the Provost serves as the chief executive officer of the University of California, Riverside. The Provost is responsible for implementation of the campus strategic plan, UCR 2020: The Path to Preeminence.
