Welcoming the New Graduate Division Dean

Chancellor Khosla with Graduate Division Dean Kit Pogliano

Chancellor Khosla and Interim Executive Vice Chancellor Peter Cowhey hosted a reception last week to officially welcome Kit Pogliano in her new role as Graduate Division Dean.  She has been a member of the UC San Diego faculty since 1996, previously serving as Chair of the Molecular Biology section in the Division of Biological Sciences.  As Graduate Dean, her responsibilities include collaborating with academic departments across campus to recruit and admit an excellent and diverse graduate student body; enhancing graduate student life; ensuring program quality; and facilitating growth of new graduate degree programs.  Both the Chancellor and the EVC said Kit Pogliano’s demonstrated excellence in leadership, research and service makes her an ideal choice to lead the Graduate Division at UC San Diego.
