The next Dean will guide the School to further distinction by inspiring excellence in teaching and research, and continuing to strengthen existing infrastructure that supports interdisciplinary thought and creative partnerships locally, nationally, and globally.

The next Dean will play a key role in designing and implementing a framework to ensure the economic and intellectual vitality of the School and further highlight and promote the contributions and visibility of physical sciences at UCI. The School is uniquely positioned on a relatively young campus, with robust STEP programs, that sits within the very established UC system. The University and School have distinction and influence coupled with the flexibility to further define their identity, and the Dean must provide the leadership to shape the School's future success for years to come.
