Vice Chancellor’s Office

spacer Welcome to Student Affairs 

It is my pleasure to serve as advocate and champion for all students. Co-curricular opportunities are essential paths to learning about self, gaining critical support when needed, and all the while illustrating the UC Irvine values which make our campus the respectful, intellectually exciting, and fun place it is. 

My Student Affairs colleagues and I want these experiences outside of the classroom to be inspirational, supportive and connected in meaningful ways to the big dreams that students envision for their intellectual, professional and personal development now and in the future. We also want students to understand how much their engagement – whether through clubs, government and leadership, events or a host of other opportunities – strengthens who we are as an academic community. 

Student Affairs works to create the very best environment for all Anteaters to fulfill a legacy of promise and possibilities. Students, you have an open invitation to visit me during the Conversation Hours I have throughout the year. I am looking forward to meeting you.
