May 15, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to announce that Kiersten Boyce, J.D., CCEP, has been appointed as Associate Vice Chancellor and Chief Compliance Officer, effective May 14, 2018.

Kiersten previously served as the Chief Compliance Officer at William & Mary, a public university in Virginia with top-ranked undergraduate and graduate programs. She spent over a decade on the executive leadership team at William & Mary, where she built one of the first university compliance and ethics programs in Virginia. Kiersten brings extensive experience in investigations, as well as Title IX and other discrimination and harassment prevention/remediation.  

We are eager to draw on Kiersten’s experience and leadership as we continue to build a campus infrastructure and climate where we hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards. In her role, Kiersten will serve as the Locally Designated Official (LDO) for UCR’s Whistleblower Policy, as well as oversee the Offices of Audit and Advisory Services, Fact Finding, Institutional Ethics and Compliance, and Title IX.

I appreciate the efforts of the students, staff, and faculty who provided input and participated in this important search process; and I am especially grateful to the members of the search committee listed below.
