When a panel of top scientists reviewed NASA's 1989 proposal to fulfill President Bush's mandate for change in the nation's space program, most were appalled by what they saw as a lack of vision in the report and at the agency itself.

Cicerone, a celebrated UC Irvine scientist who performed pioneering research into global warming and the depletion of Earth's protective ozone layer, is expected to be named today as the new chancellor of the Irvine campus, sources close to the selection said.

Laurel Wilkening's first hours Thursday as the new chancellor of UC Irvine roller coastered from the mundane to the surreal. In a typical Southern California start, the former provost at the University of Washington at Seattle found herself crawling through traffic on the way to work. On campus, she got her parking permit and filled out forms to ensure that she gets her $179,000-a-year salary. She unpacked boxes in her jumbled office.

Bad enough you have to deliver an oral report before all your classmates, but there, off to the side, is a very special observer: the chancellor of the university. That's right, Laurel L. Wilkening, the person in charge of UC Irvine, will not only be listening very carefully to your every word, she will be giving you a grade too. And you're just a freshman.

In a long-anticipated restatement of UC Irvine's academic mission, Chancellor Laurel L. Wilkening unveiled a sweeping plan Friday to propel the young campus into the ranks of the nation's top 50 research institutions by the year 2000. To cope with ever-looming state budget constraints that have dramatically sliced university funds in recent years, Wilkening will challenge her faculty to sharpen its focus on obtaining research grants from government and the private sector.

I was very interested to read "UCI Eager for Chancellor to End Silence" (April 24) on the new chancellor at UC Irvine, Laurel Wilkening. I was a bit surprised to read that she was keeping a low profile to avoid appearing "arrogant" and "stupid." After 12 years on three University of California campuses, I can safely say that arrogance and stupidity are universal attributes of UC chancellors. Please speak up, Chancellor Wilkening; true arrogance and stupidity take practice.
