    Administrative History

    The Chancellor is UC San Diego's chief administrative officer and has general authority across the university. He or she is responsible for establishing UC San Diego's administrative structure and insuring that it functions responsibly and efficiently.
    Chancellors to date have been: Herbert F. York (Founding Chancellor, 1960-1964; Acting Chancellor, 1970-1972), John S. Galbraith (Second Chancellor, 1964-1968), William J. McGill (Third Chancellor, 1968-1970), William D. McElroy (Fourth Chancellor, 1972-1980), Richard C. Atkinson (Fifth Chancellor, 1980-1995), Marjorie C. Caserio (Interim Chancellor, 1995-1996), Robert C. Dynes (Sixth Chancellor, 1996-2003), Marsha Chandler (Acting Chancellor, 2003-2004), Marye Anne Fox (Seventh Chancellor, 2004-2012), and Pradeep Khosla (Eighth Chancellor, 2012-present).
    In 1972 the Office of the Chancellor created a central filing system that was to collect records from various administrative offices. This central filing system became what is now Policy and Records Administration (formerly called Administrative Records). This office was later transferred from the Chancellor's Office to the office of the Vice-Chancellor for Resource Management and Planning (formerly the Vice-Chancellor for Administration).
    Originally, the files of Policy and Records Administration contained materials from the offices of the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor for Administration, Associate Vice-Chancellor for Business Management, Vice-Chancellor for Financial Management, and selected files from the Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs. Currently, Policy and Records Administrationve Records collects records from the offices of the Chancellor, Associate Vice-Chancellor for Business Affairs, and selected records from the Vice-Chancellor for Administration and the Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs. It is important to note that these titles have changed over time.
