The University of Illinois Chicago has announced Marie Lynn Miranda as chancellor pending formal approval by the Board of Trustees on November 17. She will assume the role as the 10th chancellor of UIC on July 5, 2023.

Miranda served as provost at the University of Notre Dame from 2020 to 2021. She has also been an active research faculty member in the Department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics since she joined the University.

“At the College of Science at University of Notre Dame we are proud to be a home for leaders like Marie Lynn, who are a force for good,” said Santiago Schnell, William K. Warren Foundation Dean of the College of Science. 

During her tenure, Miranda played an integral role in leading Notre Dame through the COVID-19 pandemic. She also helped build the most diverse class of first year undergraduates and created a leadership program to support students from underserved backgrounds. Her own research focuses on shedding light on issues of environmental justice—childhood lead exposure—in the form of racial residential segregation.

“I wish to congratulate Professor Marie Lynn Miranda on her appointment as chancellor of University of Illinois Chicago; we are very proud of her achievements and we wish her well in her new leadership role,” said Schnell.
