To: Vice Chancellors, Vice Provosts, and Deans 

Dear Colleagues:

As you are aware, over the past months, the customary five-year administrative review of No-Hee Park as Dean of the School of Dentistry has been conducted by a committee appointed by my office. The review was highly positive and on the basis of this outcome, the Chancellor and I have asked No-Hee to continue his service as Dean. I am pleased to announce that he has accepted the reappointment.

The Review Committee praised No-Hee for his strong leadership skills and his strategic vision. He has steered the School through difficult times, improving its financial status and fostering an environment for active learning and innovation. His commitment to academic excellence in research and teaching is highly commended by the Committee.

Chancellor Gene Block and I look forward to working closely with No-Hee in furthering the School of Dentistry’s goals and initiatives. UCLA’s faculty, administration, and students are fortunate to have the benefit of his extraordinary leadership. Please join me in extending appreciation and congratulations to our colleague, No-Hee Park.
