About the Vice Provost for Academic Personnel

Dr. Daniel R. Jeske became Vice Provost of Academic Personnel (VPAP) on July 1, 2020.  The excellence of the UCR faculty is the cornerstone of the University, and the VPAP plays a critical role in assuring that faculty accomplishment is promoted, recognized and rewarded in the merit and promotion system. Accordingly, the VPAP is a member of UCR’s senior leadership team and has an important role in representing faculty interests at this level.  The VPAP serves as the senior campus official with substantial responsibilities in the areas of (1) academic appointments, merits and promotions; (2) academic recruitment and retention; (3) the promotion of faculty diversity; (4) faculty development; (5) non-senate academic employee and labor relations.  The office of the VPAP works closely with other campus offices including the offices of Campus Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer, Ombuds, Academic Senate, and Human Resources.
