Teri Schwartz is named UCLA dean
Teri Schwartz, a longtime producer whose film credits include “Sister Act,” “Beaches” and “Joe Versus the Volcano,” was named dean of the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, said UCLA officials Friday.
A Los Angeles native and UCLA alumna, Schwartz has served as the first dean of the School of Film and Television at Loyola Marymount University in Westchester since 2003. Her UCLA appointment begins July 1 and must still be approved by the UC regents.
Schwartz, who began her film career as a producer in the 1970s, replaces Robert Rosen, who has been UCLA’s dean for nearly 13 years.
