Dear Campus Community:

I write to announce the launch of a national search for the Associate Vice Chancellor & Controller position at UC Riverside. The search officially launched on Friday, April 7. Please share this exciting opportunity with your networks (also see attached). For full consideration, we are requesting that applicants submit their materials no later than Friday, April 28. We hope to bring finalist candidates for campus visits in early June.

Please join me in thanking Bobbi McCracken for her exemplary contributions to the campus over the past 40 years and wishing her well in retirement. She will be stepping down in March, 2024. We will make sure to host an event early next year to recognize the significant contributions Bobbi has made to UCR, and to allow those she worked with to thank her and wish her well.

Should you wish to submit candidate nominations, please do so via email to Sinclair Dickerson, Director of Talent Acquisition & Diversity Outreach, at
