    Administrative History

    The Office of the Vice-Chancellor, Student Affairs functions to promote the enrollment, retention, academic advancement, and graduation of students, while developing leadership, communication and interpersonal skills. It fosters communities, through both college-based and campus-wide services and programs, that "promote the intellectual, social, physical, psychological, and ethical development of students. Student Affairs collaborates with students, faculty, staff, and the community in preparing students to achieve their academic and career aspirations while becoming active and constructive members of a diverse and changing society."
    The office of the Dean of Student Affairs was included in the organizational structure of the first UCSD Academic Master Plan approved in principle by the University of California Regents on February 15, 1963. Theodore W. Forbes served as the first dean and reported directly to the chancellor. George S. Murphy, Jr., succeeded Forbes in 1967 and in 1969 the office changed to the Vice-Chancellor and Dean of Student Affairs and later, in 1971, became the Office of the Vice-Chancellor, Student Affairs. Subsequent vice chancellors include Howard F. Hunt (1977-1978, acting), Richard H. Armitage (1978-1981), Joseph W. Watson (1981-2007), and Penny Rue (2007-present).
