Welcome to the UC Staff Advisors to The Regents website!

The UC Regents' continuing goal is to foster two-way communication between UC staff and the Board. In January 2007, The Regents voted unanimously to establish positions for two Staff Advisors to participate in the deliberative process and to provide a staff perspective. This website serves as a mechanism to inform the Staff Advisors, who in turn bring cogent issues to the attention of the Regents. The Staff Advisors make every effort to avail themselves to you through campus visits, presentations at system wide staff forums, release of topical reports, via their respective email addresses, and by constantly updating the site with new information.

What's on your Mind?

The UC Board of Regents and the Staff Advisors to The Regents want to know What's On Your Mind. So, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the website, its features and functionality.

Stand Up for the University of California

It is vital to the future of UC and the state of California that a stable, long-term budget be set for UC. A strong, viable higher education sector provides direct employment to thousands of staff and faculty, creates spinoff companies that create jobs in the community and trains California’s future workforce. Stand up for UC. More information on how to be a UC advocate.

Working Smarter

Faced with diminishing state support, the University of California community has coalesced around administrative and operational effectiveness as a key tenet of long-term viability. Working Smarter brings together systemwide, regional and campus-level efforts under one umbrella with a strong commitment from the top: the University is committed to elevating its administrative operations to the same level of excellence as its academic and research enterprise. Within five years, the University will redirect $500 million from administrative costs to the academic and research missions; streamline operations to address state funding cuts and the need for commonality among the campuses; implement operational efficiencies that enhance the quality of services to students, faculty and staff; and build a sustainable financial model to carry the University forward.
