Vice Chancellor for Planning and Budget
Merced, California

The University of California, Merced, the newest campus in the world-renowned University of California system, seeks a new Vice Chancellor for Planning and Budget to lead a newly established Office of Planning and Budget. Opened in 2005, UC Merced is the first U.S. research university to be built in the 21st century, and the first new UC campus in 40 years. Reporting to the Chancellor and the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, the new Vice Chancellor will serve as the campus’ chief financial and resource advisor and help lead this unique institution into an exciting new era as it continues to grow and distinguish itself within the University of California system and among research universities globally.

The University of California, Merced (UCM or UC Merced) was conceived both to serve the needs of the rapidly growing Central Valley, one of the world’s most productive agricultural regions, and to increase access to the University of California system (UC System) for California’s top achievers. In its first six years, UC Merced has grown enrollment to over 5,700 students, including 280 graduate students, and has a total budget of over $130 million; the campus is expected to grow to accommodate up to 25,000 students within three decades, while continuing to develop the campus across 815 acres. UC Merced is the most ethnically diverse campus in the UC System and has been designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution by the U.S. Department of Education, enabling access to associated federal and private grants. Sixty percent of the undergraduates are first generation college students.

The Vice Chancellor for Planning and Budget (VCPB) will provide decision support to executive leadership regarding the strategic allocation and use of campus resources and employ cutting edge financial modeling and forecasting techniques to provide the campus with robust and innovative options for setting fiscal, budgetary, and capital directions. UC Merced has made significant progress since its founding and the VCPB will build upon a strong foundation to lead the continued growth and evolution of the Merced campus. Working with faculty, students, and staff across the UC Merced community, as well as with leaders from the UC System and the regional community, the VCPB will be asked to address a set of key opportunities and challenges, as follows:

• Provide strategic and wise financial counsel in leadership and campus deliberations;
• Invent a robust and transparent budget process, implement useful management and planning tools, and build a superior financial team;
• Envision and drive capital investment through creative programs;
• Ensure all strategic academic goals and initiatives are achieved in a new funding landscape;
• Continue to build and strengthen UC Merced’s diverse and inclusive intellectual community; and
• Successfully implement a model for financial leverage that will significantly grow the Merced campus while influencing other campuses across the UC System.

The successful candidate for this position will bring expertise and progressively responsible experience in financial analysis and planning, capital and operating budgets, real estate ventures, and other areas that fall within the Vice Chancellor’s area of responsibility, and must demonstrate an ability to work collaboratively and to communicate effectively with other senior leaders and various campus constituencies, including the academic senate and staff assembly. This position represents a remarkable opportunity for a gifted financial strategist and builder to continue to develop a new campus within the world’s most prestigious public university system.
