Recently, Provost Pitts announced that he is undertaking an administrative review of all areas reporting to the Provost, including ANR. This review continues UCOP efforts to identify opportunities to improve business processes and efficiencies and to make optimal use of consolidated shared services in UC’s Office of the President by eliminating duplication. I have asked Associate Vice President Kay Harrison Taber to provide leadership for our response to this review. Kay’s knowledge of ANR’s unique operations and administrative needs is essential for the completion of this important task.
As you know, AVP Taber has announced her retirement at the end of June. Her extensive knowledge of ANR and UC has been a critical resource to ANR’s leadership team, and she will be sorely missed. While I am proceeding with plans to recruit Kay’s successor, that process will take some time. In order to facilitate a smooth transition and provide Kay with the time she needs to devote to the Provost’s review, I have appointed Chief of Staff Jan Corlett as Interim Associate Vice President. Jan has assumed organizational responsibility for business services in addition to her duties as Chief of Staff.
