All eligible UC staff and non-Senate academic employees who are interested in serving as the 2007-2008 Staff Advisor Designate to The Regents may apply during the period beginning Monday, January 29, 2007 and ending February 28, 2007, at 5 p.m.

At its January 18, 2007, meeting, the UC Board of Regents approved a permanent Staff Advisor program designed to improve direct communication between UC employees and the Board and to help facilitate staff input to the Board's deliberations and decisions. Under this program, two staff or non-Senate academic employees serve as non-voting advisors to designated Regents' committees. The Staff Advisor Designate for 2007-2008 will be selected from all eligible UC staff and non-Senate academic employees by President Dynes in consultation with the Chairman of the Board of Regents.

The term of service will be for two years beginning July 1, 2007 -- the first year (2007-08) as Staff Advisor Designate, and the second year (2008-09) as Staff Advisor.
