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.
