Tiffany Lopez Named Dean of UCI’s Claire Trevor School

Tiffany Lopez, PhD, formerly of Arizona State University, has been named dean of UC Irvine’s Claire Trevor School of the Arts.

Lopez will replace Dean Stephen Barker, who is retiring after six years of service. She will assume her new role on July 1.

A first-generation college student and granddaughter of migrant farm workers, she held a number of roles at ASU, including vice provost for inclusive excellence, professor of the Sidney Poitier New American Film School and director of ASU’s former School of Film, Dance and Theatre.

“UCI’s visionary founders included a school of fine arts in our academic plan so that the study and creation of art would be integral to our students’ experiences,” UCI Chancellor Howard Gillman said in a statement.

“Tiffany Lopez’s artistic and administrative achievements and her commitment to inclusion and diversity will advance the school’s excellence and enhance its far-reaching impact across campus and in the community.”

Prior to ASU, Lopez spent over 20 years at UC Riverside, where she was a professor and chair of the Department of Theatre, Film and Digital Production.
