Meet the UC Staff Advisors to the Regents

To: UCSC Staff

From: Ebony Lewis, Staff Advisory Board Chair

UCSC staff are invited to the SAB-sponsored “Staff Brown Bag” meeting with the UC Staff Advisors to the Regents on February 26, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the Redwood Lounge at the Redwood Building located in Quarry Plaza near the Student Union.

This is a wonderful opportunity to engage directly with Kevin Smith, Staff Advisor, and Kathy Barton, Staff Advisor Designate, to learn more about their role in supporting UC staff, and receive highlights of key initiatives that they are currently working, as well as system-wide updates regarding staff.  This is also a chance for the Staff Advisors to hear directly from you!

Managers and supervisors are encouraged to provide release time to employees to participate.

About the Staff Advisors to The Regents

A continuing goal of the UC Regents is to foster two-way communication between UC staff and the Board.  In January 2007, The Regents voted unanimously to establish positions for two Staff Advisors to participate in their deliberative process and to provide a staff perspective on matters coming before the Board.  One new Staff Advisor is selected each year for a two-year term. The Staff Advisors serve as non-voting advisors to designated Regents’ committees, and they attend and participate directly in committee and Board meetings throughout their term of service.  Visit the following for bio information of the current Staff Advisors:

*Reminder - Applications for the 2013-2015 Staff Advisor to the UC Board of Regents are due by 5:00pm March 1, 2013 at 5:00 p.m.  For more information visit
