The AVP has six direct reports with an additional 23 staff members in the AVP’s immediate administrative purview. The Division of Undergraduate Education serves as the campus-wide advocate for undergraduate education at UCLA, providing leadership to achieve the highest quality of teaching and learning; it also promotes academic success for UCLA's diverse undergraduate population, ensuring options for all students to engage in a challenging array of educational opportunities, from foundational general education courses to advanced research and honors projects, and co-curricular programs and events. The ideal candidate will bring expertise in financial and academic management and strategic planning, on the one hand, and dedication to the mission of UCLA and DUE, on the other.
