Memos to Campus

Search Advisory Committee for the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services

November 24, 2008

Dear Colleagues:

As I announced in a campus memo of October 17, after four years of outstanding leadership of our Division of Administrative Services, and more than 36 years of service to the University of California, Vice Chancellor Donna Carpenter has expressed her wish to retire, effective April 30, 2009. I wish to again extend our heartfelt thanks to Donna for her deep and sustained devotion to our university.

We will begin a national search for Donna’s successor. Following consultation with the Academic Senate and campus colleagues, I have formed a Search Advisory Committee for the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services. Dr. Aaron Ettenberg, Professor of Psychology and former Provost of the College of Letters and Science, and Dr. Gale Morrison, Dean of the Graduate Division, have graciously agreed to serve as co-chairs. Members of the Search Advisory Committee are listed below.

We want to express our appreciation in advance to the members of this committee for their willingness to devote their valuable time and wisdom to this important search, for the benefit of our campus.


Henry T. Yang
