Getting Involved

We Need You! Volunteering for Staff Assembly Events

The strength of UCR Staff Assembly can be found in the people who volunteer to participate on sub-committees. Together, we can accomplish many beneficial programs vital to the interests and well-being of our fellow UCR staff employees. Involvement in a committee is also a great way to give back to the campus community.

Spread the Word: Become an Ambassador

Staff Assembly is looking for staff members across the campus who want to join the Ambassador Program. Ambassadors help to spread the word about Staff Assembly events to the people in their departments. Our goal is to have at least one ambassador in every department across the campus.
