Complications for Faculty Center Deal?
Vice Chancellor and Chief Financial Officer Steven A. Olsen has informed me that he will be leaving UCLA on June 30, 2018. Although this will be a great loss for our campus, I am proud to share the news that he has been named vice president, chief financial officer and chief operating officer of the J. Paul Getty Trust...
No review of Steve’s accomplishments could be complete without mention of the essential role he played in every phase of the development of the Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center. Although the project faced significant challenges, today it serves as a national model for how conference centers can significantly enhance universities’ academic programs...
Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Scott Waugh and I intend to launch a national search for Steve’s successor, and we will soon announce the formation of a search advisory committee.
