Abstract

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Graduate Studies and Research records contain subject and academic program files representing the administration and organization for graduate studies affairs and research activities. The majority of the files reflect the administration of Richard Attiyeh, 1982-2006, including working files documenting curriculum and degree planning, committee meeting minutes, and proposals for undergraduate and graduate level education degree options.

Administrative History

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Graduate Studies and Research (OGSR) administered various responsibilities for graduate student planning including evaluation of programs, oversight of graduate admission and examinations, review of grant proposals, and allocation of research assistantships. The office also monitored faculty allocations within the graduate disciplines and student enrollments. The two areas of responsibility were integral components, as the office designed programs to produce graduates developing specialized areas of research post-graduation. The office also facilitated UCSD’s extensive research enterprise and promoted and supported the research mission and complex infrastructure required of the various research units. The responsibilities included research administration, Organized Research Units (ORUs) - Multicampus Research Units (MRUs), Contract and Grant Administration, Technology Transfer and Intellectual Property, and Animal Care and Animal Welfare, while playing a leadership role in federal and state research relations.

Dr. Keith A. Brueckner was appointed as the first Dean of Graduate Studies by the UC Regents at their January 1965 meeting, effective February 1, 1965. Brueckner later resigned his appointment, effective July 1, 1965. Dr. Frederick T. Wall, the Vice Chancellor - Research at UC Santa Barbara, was appointed Vice Chancellor - Graduate Studies and Research at San Diego, effective July 1, 1966. Dr. Herbert York succeeded Dr. Wall as Acting Dean in mid-September 1969, and was appointed Dean in December 1969. Dr. York continued as Dean of Graduate Studies and Research until his appointment as Acting Chancellor, effective September 1, 1970, and Dr. Roy Harvey Pearce became Acting Dean. Chancellor William McElroy appointed Dr. Roy Harvey Pearce as Dean, effective July 1, 1973, and he continued until Dr. Manuel Rotenberg was appointed Acting Dean in July 1975 and, later Dean, in May 1976. Rotenberg continued as Dean of Graduate Studies and Research until the appointment of Dr. Richard Attiyeh by Chancellor Richard C. Atkinson, effective July 1, 1982. Dr. Attiyeh retired in 2006.

Beginning in 1966, Chancellor John S. Galbraith appointed the first Vice Chancellor for Graduate Studies and Research on the UCSD campus, Dr. Frederick T. Wall (1966-1969). Under Chancellor William McGill, Clifford Grobstein obtained the new title Vice Chancellor of Educational Programs and Research and was also the Dean of the School of Medicine in 1969. It was during the time of Chancellor Herbert York, the position existed as the Dean of Graduate Studies. York held both titles in 1971. During Chancellor William McElroy's tenure, he appointed Roy Harvey Pearce (1973-1975), as Dean of Graduate Studies until Manuel Rotenberg (1975-1981) succeeded Pearce. Chancellor Richard Atkinson re-organized the administrative units in 1980 and appointed Richard Attiyeh in 1982. Attiyeh stayed in the position until 2006, in addition to his appointment as Senior Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs (1996-1998). In 1998, the title changed to Vice Chancellor for Research Affairs and Dean of Graduate Studies, which Attiyeh facilitated both units. This reorganization was facilitated by Chancellor Richard Dynes. Under the direction of Chancellor Marye Anne Fox (2005-2012), the office became two separate units: the Vice Chancellor for Research Affairs and the Office of Graduate Studies (OGS) under the Dean of Graduate Studies. The Vice Chancellor reports directly to the Senior Vice Chancellor-Academic Affairs and works closely with the Vice Chancellors-Health Sciences and Marine Sciences.
