Theodore L. Hullar, 49, executive vice chancellor at the University of California, Riverside, on Friday was named chancellor of the Riverside campus, effective July 1. The university board of regents, holding its monthly meeting on the Irvine campus, approved Hullar to succeed Tomas Rivera, who died last May. "The fit between Ted Hullar's impressive attributes and UC Riverside's momentum for growth and development is exactly right for this time and place," said UC President David Gardner.

In "Congratulations! You're About to Fail!" (Opinion, Jan. 2), Richard Lee Colvin incorrectly gives the impression that California State University students who take remedial education classes are more likely to fail or drop out. The CSU evaluates the progress of first-year freshmen needing remediation and who take remedial English and mathematics. Last year we found that of the regularly admitted, first-time freshmen enrolled in fall 2002 who needed remediation, 82% had gained full proficiency before the second year.

A UC Irvine dean's nomination to be the university's No. 2 administrator has raised fears among some on campus that it signals a shift away from a strong commitment to raising the number of women and minority faculty and students. UCI Chancellor Jack W. Peltason has recommended that L. Dennis Smith, UCI's dean of biological sciences since 1987, be named executive vice chancellor for academic affairs, a spokeswoman for Peltason confirmed Tuesday.

I was very pleased to see front-page coverage of developments in UC Irvine's Interdisciplinary Program in Asian American Studies (May 13). As a faculty member and administrator keenly committed to supporting the growth of Asian American studies at UCI, I applaud your efforts to bring attention to this high-quality program. The article was unclear about several important issues. The program in Asian American studies does indeed hold its own faculty positions, and, like its counterpart programs in Chicano/Latino studies and African American studies, has made a series of important appointments of outstanding scholars over the past several years.

Your Nov. 20 editorial on the allegations of wrongdoing by UC Irvine doctors at the now-closed fertility clinic correctly pointed out the frustrations in trying to get a clear picture of just how many women may have been victimized by these doctors' alleged acts of transferring eggs or embryos without the patients' consent. At UCI, this frustration is compounded by the fact that we still do not have a substantial portion of the patient records kept by these doctors, despite our having sued them for the records earlier this year.
