  • University of California, Berkeley
  • Berkeley, CA

Diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice (DEIBJ) principles are core to the type of institution that the University of California, Berkeley, aspires to become. As Berkeley strives toward the ideals of an inclusive, uplifting, anti-racist, and justice-centered campus during this unprecedented time in higher education and in the world, the University seeks a collaborative and solutions-oriented leader to serve as the next Assistant Vice Chancellor and Chief of Staff for the Division of Equity and Inclusion (COS-E&I).

The Chief of Staff role offers the exciting opportunity to be part of the executive team that leads a vibrant division that impacts the lives and experiences of the full Berkeley community – students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the outside world. Berkeley has one of the three largest Equity and Inclusion divisions in the country, whether measured by the number of units, full-time employees, or total budget oversight. The size brings tremendous financial, leadership, and operational complexity and introduces significant opportunities and challenges in line with Berkeley’s mission as one of the leading public institutions in the nation.

The Chief of Staff (COS-E&I) reports to the Vice Chancellor for Equity and Inclusion and is responsible for managing the overall operations of the Vice Chancellor’s Immediate Office, ensuring optimal services are provided in the areas of communication, financial analysis, Human Resources, institutional research, and policy analysis, among others. A critical member of the core leadership team, the COS-E&I coordinates strategic planning and major initiatives for the Vice Chancellor for Equity and Inclusion (VCEI), provides executive advising and support to the division, coordinates internal and externals partnerships, and represents the VCEI as appropriate.
