UC Riverside Academic Senate


At the heart of every great university is a distinguished faculty

Senate Update

June 29, 2017

Dear Senate Colleagues,

I'm sharing the system-wide Academic Council's concerns about the State Assembly Budget bill that proposes direct allocation of state funds to UCOP and withholds funding from the University. Also, i expect to post the summaries of the 2016/2017 Cluster Hiring Survey and the Survey of 2013-2016 UCR Faculty Hires in the coming weeks.

Have a safe summer.


Welcoming Interim PEVC Cindy Larive

February 22, 2017

Dear faculty colleagues,

I am writing on behalf of the Senate Executive Council to welcome Interim Provost/EVC Cindy Larive. Her record as a UCR faculty member, nationally recognized scholar, department chair, Divisional Dean, and Vice Provost of Undergraduate Education reflects a quality of leadership that is widely respected across the UCR campus, and across the UC system.

The Senate, in consultation with its Committee on Rules and Jurisdiction, is cancelling the previously announced Special Meeting on the topic of a Vote of No Confidence in Provost/EVC Paul D’Anieri.

I extend special thanks to our colleagues who have served on the Senate Special Committee, which has been working overtime in recent weeks to fulfill its responsibilities. The Special Committee is executing its charge in the most constructive way possible, with rigorous consideration of the feedback provided by Senate faculty on the present and future of the UCR campus. In the absence of the Special Meeting, the Special Committee will offer a document that reflects careful consideration of the collective challenges we must engage in our efforts to move forward under the principles of Shared Governance.

On behalf of the Senate, i thank all of you for continually showing your deep commitment to our students, our scholarly mission, and our role in this public research university.

Professor of Ethnic Studies & Chair of the Riverside Division
