Chancellor's Distinguished Lecture Series
The Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture Series launched in 2005 to involve members of the wider community in the academic life at UCR and inspire faculty, staff, and students to think beyond the lecture hall and laboratory.
The Chancellor’s Advisory Committees provide an opportunity for the Chancellor to seek valuable input and feedback from key community constituencies.
Task Force on Campus Culture
The Campus Culture Task Force builds on the work of recent departmental and campus-wide reviews, to analyze our formal policies, informal processes, and organizational behavior to address bullying, harassment, favoritism, and toxic work environments. Associate Vice Chancellor and Chief Diversity Officer Mariam Lam and Dean of the Bourns College of Engineering Christopher Lynch are co-chairing the task force.
Task Force on the California Gender Recognition Act
Task Force on Staff Engagement
Associate Vice Chancellor for Human Resources Jadie Lee and Immediate Past President of Staff Assembly Julie Salgado co-chaired the Task Force on Staff Engagement, which launched in May 2018 to identify opportunities to enhance staff engagement and develop recommendations for additional actions to increase staff engagement at UCR.
Free Speech Working Group
Made up of students, faculty, and staff, the Free Speech Working Group is tasked with reviewing UCR's policies and practices related to free speech.
Senior Leadership Development Assessments
Every five years, each Senior Management Group (SMG) member participates in a leadership development assessment (or five-year review). This formative review process is designed to provide broader feedback than is usual with an annual performance evaluation, including assessment of administrative effectiveness, identification of accomplishments and challenges, and evaluation of progress toward campus and unit goals.
On January 24, 2017, Chancellor Wilcox announced a series of conversations with the UCR community over the course of the winter quarter focused on reframing and expanding communication and consultation on matters of importance to the campus.
UCR 2020: the Path to Preeminence
Drawing on knowledge and expertise from across campus, UCR developed a strategic plan to provide a framework for growth and investment over a decade. Built on four overarching themes—excellence, access, diversity, and engagement—UCR 2020 uses benchmarks set by AAU-member universities to define goals and dictate assessment.
Living the Promise: The Campaign for UC Riverside
On Oct. 15, 2016, UC Riverside launched the public phase of its first ever comprehensive fundraising campaign—Living the Promise: The Campaign for UC Riverside. With completion of the campaign planned for 2020, Living the Promise seeks to raise $300 million overall, focusing on increased funding for student support, faculty research, and infrastructure.
Physical Master Plan Study
