Regents OK med school dean’s promotion to UCSF chancellorship

SAN FRANCISCO — The University of California regents on Thursday confirmed Dr. Sam Hawgood as the new chancellor of UC San Francisco, where he has served as dean of the School of Medicine and interim chancellor.

Hawgood, 61, identified last week as UC President Janet Napolitano’s top choice for the job, will fill the role left by outgoing Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann, who left the university in the spring to become chief executive officer of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The new chancellor said he planned to focus his efforts on increasing funding for basic research at UCSF as well as promoting new partnerships to help commercialize advancements in technologic and biologic sciences.

“I understand and deeply respect the core values of UCSF — and both the principle and practice of shared governance with the faculty,” Hawgood told the regents after they approved his appointment.

“But I know that, while we should remain connected to our past and preserve our values,” he said, “our times call for a rigorous look at the reality of the world today and a willingness to move forward in new directions.”

The regents approved a state-funded base salary of $500,000, plus $250,000 to be funded through an endowed chair, The Arthur Rock and Toni Rembe Distinguished Professorship, which was created specifically for the chancellor position by the UCSF Foundation and uses no state funds.

Hawgood’s total cash compensation ranks 34th among chancellors and presidents of the 62 public research universities that are part of the Association of American Universities, UC officials reported.

He also will receive an annual automobile allowance of $8,916 and be provided with the UCSF chancellor’s home, UC officials said. The residence is maintained with non-state funds.

Hawgood, a native of Australia, joined UCSF as a research fellow in 1982 after receiving his medical degree from the University of Queensland in Brisbane. He headed UCSF’s pediatrics department and was physician-in-chief of UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital before serving as dean of the medical school in 2007.

He has been serving as president of the UCSF Medical Group, the faculty association that represents more than 1,800 UCSF physicians.

Hawgood and his wife, Jane, have two grown sons.
