About the EVC Office

The Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor, located in 105 University Center, is the home of Executive Vice Chancellor Elizabeth Simmons and Senior Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Planning and Resources William Hodgkiss. The office is the central hub of the Academic Affairs administrative support units, which include Academic Personnel Services, Resource Administration and Undergraduate Education. We also serve as a central resource for all Academic Affairs units reporting directly to the Executive Vice Chancellor, including General Campus Divisions and Schools, Graduate Division, Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Student Affairs, the Preuss School, the Stuart Collection, Undergraduate Colleges, The Library, and University Extension.
