The ninth chancellor in the campus's 40-year history, Denton issued a message to the campus community and is hosting a number of introductory meetings. She also was treated to a brief reception by the staff in her office.

During a busy first week on the job, the new chancellor will address UCSC's Academic Senate, join alumni in Sacramento for a UC-advocacy event, and launch a "listening tour" of the campus.

Week Two will include a discussion with staff at a winter quarter forum.
