Announcement Regarding the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost
After nearly five years of outstanding service to UCSF as Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost (EVCP), Jeff Bluestone has informed me of his intention to step down. He will be focusing on his exciting research program in the Diabetes Center, while continuing to assist me and the University in a number of strategic ways.
As EVCP, Jeff served as our campus chief academic officer, guiding the research and academic enterprise wisely and carefully during a challenging recessionary period as well as advancing campus research, educational and strategic priorities in close collaboration with the Chancellor and the campus leadership team.
