Winston Doby PDF Print E-mail
 Throughout his professional career, Winston Doby has been dedicated to helping students from elementary school through graduate programs receive a high quality education and achieve their goals. His career spans over thirty-five years of service to UCLA, the University of California system, and the communities in which he has lived.

He was born in Alabama, the youngest of eight children. He moved to California at age five and grew up in the Watts area of South Central Los Angeles. When he enrolled at Fremont High School, he was a straight “A” student, who dreamed of being an architect; nevertheless, his counselor put him on a vocational track. When his physical education and track coach, Bill Thayer, realized this, he intervened to get him back on an academic track. When he learned later that Doby planned to attend Compton College, he drove him to UCLA and persuaded track coach Elvin “Ducky Drake” to give him a partial scholarship. In exchange, he asked Doby to teach three years after he finished college.

After graduating from UCLA with a degree in mathematics, Doby taught at Fremont High School from 1963-67. He became a charter member of the Locke High School faculty, where he was the Mathematics Department Chairman, Athletic Director, and Coach. After a one-year stint as the Assistant Track Coach at UCLA, he joined the UCLA administration in 1969 and held a variety of positions, while completing his master’s degree in Education. He finished his Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration in 1974.

He began working full-time at UCLA as the Director of the Upward Bound Program and, over the years, has provided leadership to many student academic programs. He served as Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at UCLA for over twenty years, chairing numerous task forces that focused on issues that directly impact students. In 2002, he moved to the University of California Office of the President to become the Vice President—Educational Outreach. Today he is the Vice President—Student Affairs and oversees a wide variety of activities that affect UC and K-12 students in California. These include Admissions; Student Financial Services; Student Life; Student Academic Preparation and Educational Partnership; P-20 Alliances; Teacher Education and Professional Development Programs; and Community Partnerships.

In addition to his University service, Doby has shown a deep commitment to his community. For over a decade, he was an external member of the Los Angeles Unified School District’s Evaluation Planning Team. He co-founded the Young Black Scholars Program and founded the Black Male Achievement Project at Ralph Bunche Elementary School. He also launched the Los Angeles Sports Academy, founded a charter school for high school dropouts, and was a key contributor to a middle school pilot project designed to improve mathematics competency. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the UCLA Black Alumni Association and the Neal Jacoby International Award.
