Dear UCSF Community:

I am delighted to announce the appointment of Catherine Lucey, MD, as UCSF’s next executive vice chancellor and provost (EVCP). Her depth of experience, leadership savvy, and insight into our mission make her an excellent match for this role.

I recruited Catherine as vice dean for education when I was dean of the School of Medicine, and in the decade since, she has been instrumental in ensuring UCSF’s success. As a practicing physician, an educator, and a key member of the leadership group under Dean Talmadge E. King, Jr., she has helped to oversee every part of UCSF’s mission: education, patient care, research, and public service.

As School of Medicine executive vice dean and vice dean for education, Catherine co-chaired our recent highly successful UCSF: The Campaign, led a redesign of the school’s curriculum, and co-chaired the Differences Matter initiative. When the pandemic struck, she was part of a core group that found ways to sustain our educational mission through the disruption.

Please join me in congratulating Catherine on her new role, which will take effect in the new year. She will be a strong partner to help us continue moving UCSF forward in the years to come.
