About Staff Assembly
What is Staff Assembly?
UCR Staff Assembly is a volunteer organization made up of staff employees at the University of California, Riverside and a branch of the Council of University of California Staff Assemblies (CUCSA). It is sanctioned by the chancellor and granted authority by the regents to serve as an advisory body to the chancellor on staff matters, as applicable by law. It is neither represented by a collective-bargaining agent, nor does it act as a collective-bargaining unit.
Consisting of an executive board and several sub-committees, Staff Assembly's purpose is to promote the interests of staff, provide opportunities for personal and professional development, and to foster communication among staff, faculty and students.
Staff Assembly is often asked to provide the voice of non-represented employees for important issues that affect our workplace and our lives.

How is Staff Assembly Funded?
Staff Assembly is funded through an annual allocation from the Office of the Chancellor, donations from our staff members, as well as corporate and organizational sponsors.
Staff Advisors to the UC Regents
In January 2007, the UC Regents established two staff advisor positions to participate in the deliberative process and to provide a staff perspective. 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.
