March 6 is application deadline for Staff Advisor to the Regents

Applications to be the next Staff Advisor-designate to the Regents are due March 6.

The staff advisor program allows for two staff and/or non-Senate academic employees to participate in open sessions of designated committees of the board. The staff advisors bring the voice and perspective of staff and non-Senate academic employees to board deliberations.

The current staff advisors to the Regents are Donna Coyne, associate director of admissions at UC Santa Barbara, whose two-year term will expire in June, and De Acker, ombuds at UC Merced, who joined the Board in July 2014.

Application forms and additional information about the staff advisor program are available at the staff advisor website. Questions about the staff advisor position or the application process should be directed to Juliann Martinez, UCOP Employee Relations, at 510-287-3331 or via email:

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.
