    Organizational History

    The position of the Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor began as the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs in 1962 as one of the initial positions created during the planning of the university. Ivan R. Hinderaker, the first Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs, was responsible for much of the early academic planning and recruitment of the senior administrators at UCI. In late 1977, the title was changed to the Executive Vice Chancellor (EVC) to reflect the growing responsibilities of the position, with James L. McGaugh serving as the first EVC from 1977 to 1982. The position underwent a second change upon the departure of McGaugh; from 1982 to 1985, William J. Lillyman was called The Vice Chancellor until the title returned to Executive Vice Chancellor by April 1985. In 2006, the title changed to its current incarnation, Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost.
    The Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor was UC Irvine's chief academic and operating officer. Under the direction of the Chancellor, the Provost assumed primary responsibility for the academic and organizational functioning of the campus and the advancement of the University's missions in research, teaching and service. The Provost played a primary role in the development and implementation of academic programs; planning for faculty recruitment and retention; day-to-day campus operations, including budget allocations and capital finances; and the conception, design, and implementation of major campus initiatives. In these roles, the Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor directed and collaborated with the campus' five vice chancellors, twelve deans, the University Librarian, CEO of the Medical Center and Academic Senate leadership. The Provost also served as liaison between the central administration and the broader campus community, frequently meeting with a wide variety of campus units and groups to convey important information and foster dialogue.
