Dr. Pablo G. Reguerín

Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, Pablo Reguerín

Position Title
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs


For Pablo Reguerín, his recent start as vice chancellor for Student Affairs marked a return to campus. Pablo completed his doctorate in Education at UC Davis in 2017, but his professional interest in supporting student success and equity dates to his days as a work-study student employee in the EOP center at UC Santa Cruz.

Completing his Bachelor of Arts in Latino and Latin American Studies at Santa Cruz, Pablo went on to earn a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from Columbia University. Progressive leadership roles over an almost 20-year affiliation with UC Santa Cruz led up to his serving as associate vice chancellor of student achievement and equity innovation, a position he held from 2017 until the May 2020 announcement of his selection as vice chancellor for Student Affairs at UC Davis.

Pablo’s family immigrated to the Bay Area from Bolivia when he was two. As he tells it, education has had a transformative influence in his life; and as a leader in higher education, he has emphasized equity, inclusion and access to the opportunity it promises. As vice chancellor, Pablo oversees the nearly 30 units that make up the Division of Student Affairs, including programs and partnerships that promote student learning and success, personal growth and lifelong education.
