Organizational Updates

University Health Services

As of July 1, 2017, University Health Services’ (UHS) reporting line will change from the Division of Administration & Finance to the Division of Student Affairs.

During the transition, UHS and Student Affairs will continue to collaborate, ensuring that the critical health and wellness work UHS does for students, faculty and staff is strengthened. UHS will continue its many productive collaborations with colleagues in Administration & Finance. Overall, this reporting line change will be an opportunity to enhance the experience of all members in our Berkeley community.


The Lawrence Hall of Science

As of July 1, 2017 the Lawrence Hall of Science reporting line will be changing from Student Affairs to the Vice Chancellor for Research. This move was recommended as part of a recent external review of Student Affairs, because the Lawrence Hall of Science is better aligned with the function and role of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research. We feel that this change will serve the interests of the public science center’s staff and visitors well.

As part of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, the Lawrence Hall of Science will be joining seven other museums, which form the Berkeley Natural History Museums, along with an accomplished network of diverse research units, spanning physical sciences, social sciences, and humanities. This affiliation will provide the Hall with a community that is similarly engaged in creative and innovative research, education, and outreach.
