AirUCI faculty Michael Dennin has been appointed to a second five-year term as Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning and Dean of the Division of Undergraduate Education. This reappointment follows an administrative review, which included materials and letters of evaluation from senior administrators, deans, associate deans, faculty, external reviewers, and staff members.
 
As the first Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning at UCI, Mike established a mission and vision dedicated to enhancing undergraduate student success.  Under his leadership, the Division of Undergraduate Education was reorganized and the Division of Teaching Excellence and Innovation was created to streamline support and enable the transformation of instruction at UCI.  Summer Session was integrated into the main campus structure to incorporate strategic review of course offerings.  New resources for faculty enabled the scaling of tools and programs to advance undergraduate teaching.  His leadership, performance, and accomplishments have positioned UCI as a national model for pedagogical innovation and student success.  Congratulations, Mike!
