UC names new vice provost for research

22 August 2001 | Lawrence Coleman, a UC Davis physicist and former chair of the systemwide Academic Council, has been named vice provost for research at UC Office of the President.

“Dr. Coleman brings a wide range of scientific and leadership excellence to a position that requires great vision and experience,” said C. Judson King, UC provost and senior vice president of academic affairs.

Coleman, 53, has served as interim vice provost for research since Jan. 1.

Coleman’s primary responsibilities will be to provide coordination on research matters among the Office of the President, the 10 UC campuses and the three national laboratories that UC manages for the federal Department of Energy; to develop university positions on major policy issues related to research; and to provide leadership in identifying and developing strategic responses to major research opportunities and initiatives.

For the past three years, Coleman has served UC at the systemwide level, serving as faculty representative to the Board of Regents, chair of the UC Academic Council and Assembly and then as interim vice provost for research.
