On behalf of Sarah Latham, Vice Chancellor Business and Administrative Services (BAS), I am pleased to announce that the national recruitment and search for the position of Assistant Vice Chancellor (AVC) for Staff Human Resources (SHR) has yielded four candidate finalists who will be visiting campus at the beginning of the winter quarter. The campus community will have the opportunity to meet these finalists during an open forum held during each visit, and participants are encouraged to provide confidential input to the search committee.

The candidate finalists will be on campus on the following days:

1/8/12 (Tuesday), 9:00-10:00 am (Bay Tree Cervantes & Velasquez Conf. Rm.) - Jo Packham

The AVC SHR is the senior staff human resources executive at UCSC in a time of significant organizational change and will lead the campus implementation of the new UCPath program. Working with senior leadership, the AVC SHR will lead, develop and manage progressive human resource services, programs, and systems aligned with the university mission of teaching, research and public service. This person will also continue to advance the campus vision for being the “employer of choice” for our region. 

Members of the Search Committee include; Lisetha Aranda, Jan Cloud, Laurie Eppler, John Guertin, Nicolle Laird, Marie Logan, Jim Moore, and Madlyn Norman-Terrance.  I serve as Chair for the Committee and the process.
