UC President Janet Napolitano is set to present her vision for the University of California Wednesday night in her first major appearance since taking office late September.

Napolitano is the 20th UC president and the first woman to hold the position. She will speak at 6 p.m. at the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco and will outline her vision for the 10-campus institution. The event is hosted by the Commonwealth Club of California.

Since her tenure began, Napolitano has spent much of her time acquainting herself with the university. She has visited six campuses and met with student representatives from the UC Student Association and other groups.

The speech represents a chance for Napolitano to address student and faculty concerns, which have ranged from her inexperience working in academia to the effect of her former position as U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security on the lives of undocumented students at the university.

Doors open at 5:15 p.m. Student tickets are $10.
