Chancellor's Message Regarding UCSC Chancellor Denice Denton

June 26, 2006

You may have heard by now the very sad news of UCSC Chancellor Denice Denton’s death Saturday, June 24.

Denice Denton was a friend. She helped open the administrative ranks of academic engineering to women, and like many who are among the first to challenge a barrier, she encountered those who were not supportive. Despite that, her life was filled with achievements, many of which relied on her own quick intellect; but many of her achievements were directed to helping others. We have lost an intellectual force, a friend of the underrepresented, and a passionate supporter of women’s rights. Our thoughts are with her family and her many friends around the world.
