ALL STAFF AT UCSD
NON-SENATE ACADEMIC EMPLOYEES (including UCSD Medical Center)
The UC Staff Advisor program, instituted in 2005-2006, is intended to allow The Regents to benefit from hearing staff and non-Senate academic employee perspectives on relevant matters that come before Regents' committees and the Board.
Under the program, two individual staff and/or non-Senate academic employees serve as non-voting advisors to three Regental committees: the Committee on Educational Policy, the Committee on Finance and the Committee on Long Range Planning. The Staff Advisors attend and participate directly in committee and Board meetings throughout their term of service. The current advisors are serving two-year staggered terms. One of the two incumbents' term will end July 1, 2008 and the other will end July 1, 2009. The incoming Staff Advisor will serve a two-year term beginning July 1, 2008.
All eligible UC staff and non-Senate academic employees who are interested in serving as the 2008-2010 Staff Advisor to The Regents may apply during the period beginning Wednesday, January 16, 2008 and ending at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 29, 2008. The Staff Advisor will be selected from all eligible UC staff and non-Senate academic employees by President Dynes in consultation with the Chairman of the Board of Regents.
Further information about the Staff Advisor Program, the application form, a complete explanation of eligibility and the application and selection process, and information on the role and responsibilities of the Staff Advisor, can be found under "How to Apply" at:
