UC Riverside

Be they from members of our administration, our faculty and staff, or even our students, the successful operation of the university requires the contributions of a variety of unique individuals.

UCR’s chancellor is Kim A. Wilcox. He assumed the post in August 2013 and is assisted in the day-to-day operations of the university by Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor Paul J. D’Anieri.

UC Riverside's administrative organizational structure features five vice chancellors whose offices oversee specific areas and who report directly to the chancellor. These are:

  • Office of Business and Administrative Services (BAS)
    Under the direction of Vice Chancellor Ron Coley, the Office of Business and Administrative Services oversees a wide variety of campus business and support services, including financial accountability, architects and engineers, human resources, payroll, purchasing, parking, police, environmental health and safety, physical plant, risk management, and others.
  • Office of Planning and Budget
    Under the direction of Vice Chancellor Maria Anguiano, the Office of Planning and Budget oversees campus-wide strategic planning, financial planning and analysis, institutional research and capital asset strategies.
  • Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research
    Under the direction of Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development Michael Pazzani, the office oversees a variety of campus research centers and research units and assists with research funding and grant proposals .
  • Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
    Under the direction of James Sandoval, the office oversees UCR’s large and diverse student-body and the more than 30 programs that provide resources to aid students' personal, academic and professional growth.
  • Office of the Vice Chancellor for University Advancement
    Under the direction of Peter Hayashida, the office enhances public awareness of UCR's achievements and generates financial resources for the university.

Independent from the other bodies is the Office of Campus Counsel. From advice in developmental policy to conflict resolution, the Campus Counsel provides continuing legal guidance to UCR’s leadership.

The Academic Senate serves as the representative body for the UCR faculty. By definition, all faculty are members of the Academic Senate, with officers coming from a variety of backgrounds across campus. The Senate is responsible for the selection and ratification of courses, admissions conditions and faculty members. The Senate also advises the chancellor and campus administrators on some of the most critical decisions made at UCR.
