A Citation for Louise Taylor
Louise Taylor, director of the Office of Planning and Analysis
and special assistant to the vice chancellor, has received the
Berkeley Citation for her 34 years service to the university
and extraordinary accomplishments on its behalf.
During her career, Taylor served under six chancellors. Campus
projects to which she made major contributions include the academic
plans of the 60s, 70s, and 80s; the model of faculty turnover
and hiring; the academic personnel system; the academic affirmative
action plan; the return to the semester system; the reorganization
of biology; management of the construction/renovation of four
biological sciences buildings; the Academic Planning Board; and,
most recently, the Seismic Action Plan.
At a Feb. 12 retirement ceremony, Associate Chancellor Jim Hyatt
cited Taylors record ... of service and unwavering commitment
to the highest ideals of the Berkeley campus.
She has given 120 percent of herself to every project she has
undertaken, said Loris Davanzo, assistant director of the Planning
and Analysis Office.
