SAB Fall Chancellor Forum on Oct. 30 and Staff Polls

To: UC Santa Cruz Staff

From: Fiona Weigant, Chair, Staff Advisory Board

Greetings, from the Staff Advisory Board (SAB)!

This year’s Staff Appreciation Picnic will take place on April 30, 2019. We value your feedback! That’s why we are asking you to fill out this one-question poll so we can incorporate staff preferences as we determine where to hold this year’s event. Your email address will be recorded so we can ensure there is only one vote per person.

With Chancellor George Blumenthal announcing his retirement, President Janet Napolitano is forming a search committee to find our next chancellor. The SAB is charged to send one person as the representative for UCSC staff on this search committee, and has elected Fiona Weigant (Staff Advisory Board Chair) to fill this role. In the near future, we will be reaching out to all campus staff to ask you for your input, so we can ensure we are representing your opinions accurately to the search committee and President Napolitano.

We are pleased to invite you to the SAB-sponsored Fall Chancellor Forum, wherein the chancellor will provide updates on the campus and answer any questions you may bring. Here are the details:

Managers and supervisors are strongly encouraged to provide release time to employees so they may attend this event. The SAB highly recommends that staff attend to hear about the important issues affecting staff and the university as a whole. We hope to see you there.

If you are unable to attend and would like to forward your questions for Chancellor Blumenthal in advance, please email by 5 p.m. on Oct. 26, 2018. The forum will be recorded and posted to the SAB website.

Thank you, 
UCSC Staff Advisory Board
