Apply by March 4 to be the next staff advisor to UC Regents

The application period for the next staff advisor to the UC Regents is now open, and eligible employees at all locations are encouraged to apply through March 4, 2016.

Staff advisors are staff or non-Senate academic employees who bring the voice and perspective of these employees to UC Board of Regents deliberations and to decision-makers at the Office of the President. Staff advisors participate in open sessions and designated committees of the board.

Each of the two staff advisors serves two years. The terms are staggered, with one new staff advisor selected each year. The term for the staff advisor position that is open for applications runs from July 2016 to June 2018.

You are eligible to serve in this role if you:

  • Are a staff or non-Senate academic employee. The seat is open to both non-represented and represented employees.
  • Have at least five years of UC service

The current staff advisors are Deidre “De” Acker, director of campus climate at UC Merced, whose term expires in June, and LaWana Richmond, a business analyst at UC San Diego whose term expires in 2017.

“The role of the Staff Advisor to the Regents was a huge learning experience, even after 27 years in the UC system,” Acker said. “We say that we advisors ‘plant seeds’ so I am looking forward to seeing how those seeds will be cultivated by the staff advisors in the future.”

You can learn more about the program and how to apply by the March 4 deadline on the staff advisor website.

Questions about the staff advisor position or the application process should be directed to Juliann Martinez, UC Office of the President Employee Relations, at 510-287-3331 or via email:

Career Tracks – Next Steps & Post-Deployment Timeline

Thank you to everyone who participated in the partnership to successfully implement Career Tracks at UC Riverside. Our implementation was effective September 27, 2015 for nonexempt employees and October 1, 2015 for exempt employees. For news regarding the post-deployment timeline and next steps, please see our update on the HR Career Tracks website.


Performance Appraisal Process and Timeline

The campus is moving the annual performance appraisal cycle for staff employees to conclude in March of each year. For 2015/16, staff employees will be evaluated in April 2016 for a nine-month review period (July 2015 through March 2016). Thereafter, employees will be evaluated April of each year for the 12 month period ending on March 31st.  The new appraisal cycle will apply to both represented and non-represented staff employees. 

The Chancellor’s Committee on Staff Compensation recommended changes to the performance appraisal rating scale, factors and forms. Those recommendations were approved and the new appraisal process/tools are currently in development. The new appraisal standards and tools will be introduced to staff in Spring 2016 and will apply to performance beginning with the 2016/2017 review cycle. Managers will be provided training in early 2016.

Folks very often brag, and rightfully so, about their health-conscious activities and eating habits. And many companies — the University of California, Riverside included — are not blind to the trend. Read more
