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.
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.
