SUBJECT: UCSD Staff Associations
This is a reminder that a number of staff associations have received official recognition at UCSD and I encourage and support their activities and programs.
The UCSD Staff Associations listed below foster communication among University entities, assist in the recruitment and retention of a diversified work force, and pursue other goals of mutual importance. These groups hold regular monthly meetings and sponsor educational programs. Membership is open to all UCSD career and casual employees.
I encourage all supervisors to be flexible and permit employees to attend the meetings and programs of these associations as part of normal University business when their job responsibilities do not conflict with their participation. Employees who wish to participate in any of these associations meetings and programs during scheduled work hours must obtain supervisory approval in advance.
The currently recognized staff associations are as follows:
American Indian Faculty and Staff Association Black Staff Association
Chicano/Latino Staff Association
Community Advocates for Disability Rights and Education Pan-Asian Staff Association
UCSD Staff Association
Umbrella Group
Women's Caucus
More information may be obtained from the Human Resources Division of Equal Opportunity/Staff Affirmative Action at 534-3694, or via electronic mail to parnett@ucsd.edu.
Please post and/or route this notice and bring it to the attention of supervisors, timekeepers, and other appropriate department personnel.
