Message from the President

2016-2017 President, Robert Wolfer

Dear UCR Staff,

It is an honor to be leading the UCR Staff Assembly for the 2016-2017 year and I am excited to be working with some great staff members on the Executive Board. Our mission is to enhance the staff experience here at UCR and we do this in three distinct ways. 

First, we have several RECOGNITION activities including our service milestone recognitions held at our general meetings, our peer to peer Get Recognized Program and our annual Outstanding Staff Awards.

ENGAGEMENT is the second way that UCR Staff Assembly works to enhance the staff experience.  Throughout the year, Staff Assembly is involved in several events aimed at engaging staff including our partnership with the Chancellor for the Fall Staff Picnic, our annual holiday event and our end of your celebration.  Each of these events are designed to be opportunities for staff to get together and get to know each other across campus.

Finally, the UCR Staff Assembly enhances the staff experience through DEVELOPMENT. Annually, the Professional Development committee of Staff Assembly distributes approximately $4500 in staff professional development scholarships.

The President and Vice President also serve on the Council of University of California Staff Assemblies (CUCSA). The mission of CUCSA is to maintain and enhance communication within the University Community on matters of interest to staff employees in accordance with California laws and Regent policy.

I would like to thank Chancellor Wilcox for his annual financial support, Vice Chancellor Anguiano for her tremendous leadership and guidance and our generous staff donors who participate in our Society ’54 fundraising program.  A payroll donation of $5 a month is all it takes to be a part of enhancing the staff experience here at UCR.

I look forward to another successful year.
