UCLA Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost 

To: Vice Chancellors, Vice Provosts, and Deans

Dear Colleagues:

As you are aware, over the past months, a committee appointed by my office has been conducting the customary five-year administrative review of Cathy Sandeen as Dean of Continuing Education and University Extension. The review was highly positive and on the basis of this outcome, the Chancellor and I have asked Cathy to continue her service as Dean. I am pleased to announce that she has accepted the reappointment.

The Review Committee praised Cathy for being a visionary leader and an effective administrator. Her commitment to excellence has been evident in her successful efforts to enhance the quality and accessibility of academic programs. Her leadership and entrepreneurial skills have helped elevate UCLA Extension’s reputation nationally.

Chancellor Gene Block and I look forward to working closely with Cathy in furthering Extension’s goals and initiatives. UCLA’s faculty, administration, and students are fortunate to have the benefit of her extraordinary leadership. Please join me in extending appreciation and congratulations to our colleague, Cathy Sandeen.
