Executive Searches

UCR's Executive Searches are conducted by the Strategic Executive Administrative Team (SEAT). SEAT is the gateway to attracting top performing candidates to UC Riverside's senior management positions, such as deans, vice chancellors, and vice provosts. We seek distinguished and innovative individuals to support and sustain UCR's strategic goals and mission.

Partnering with the Office of the Chancellor and Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor, SEAT provides a wide range of services, including acting as a liaison to executive search firms, assisting in search firm selection, providing support, advice and counsel to search committees, coordinating outreach and advertising, providing personnel policy guidance, and ensuring employment compliance. In addition, SEAT schedules and organizes interviews, campus visits, travel arrangements, and serves as a liaison between candidates and UC Riverside.
