UCI Music alumna Jennifer dos Santos joins School of Social Ecology
UCI Claire Trevor School of the Arts Department of Music alumna Jennifer dos Santos recently joined the UCI School of Social Ecology’s administrative team as the senior assistant dean. She began her role on Jan. 9, 2023.
dos Santos joined the campus staff in 2007, serving in positions at the School of Humanities, School of Social Sciences, and School of Physical Sciences. She most recently served as the chief administrative officer for UCI’s Mathematics Department.
She received her Bachelor of Music from UCI and a Master of Music from the University of Redlands. During her first eight years as a staff member on campus, dos Santos also held a career as a professional classical musician.
“It was a difficult decision to end my music career as a flautist,” she says, “but once I realized I could use many of the tools gained from my experience as a musician and apply them to my career at UCI, I was excited at the prospect of growing within the campus. From teaching music for all age groups to being part of a flute section working together to lead the woodwinds while also blending in with the rest of the ensemble, these experiences have helped to build me into the leader and mentor I aspire to be.”
