UCLA’s executive vice chancellor and provost serves as the university’s second-ranking officer and strategic partner to the chancellor, bringing broad vision and executive leadership to campuswide policymaking, planning, initiatives, and operations.
Statement on the Importance of Constructive Dialogue
In a diverse university community committed to rigorous inquiry and free expression, disagreements — intellectual, political, ethical, or otherwise — will inevitably arise. At UCLA, my hope is that we do not feel threatened by differences of opinion but instead view them as opportunities to engage and learn from each other. With faculty, students, and staff hailing from all over the world, UCLA affords all of us the benefit of encountering, considering, wrestling with, and responding to ideas we have never come across before, even those that make us uncomfortable.
