Vice President of Human Resources Dwaine Duckett sent the following email to UCOP staff on March 31:
It is with considerable sadness that I write to inform you of the passing of a dear colleague, Linda Klink. Linda had been ill, and her family notified us of her passing on Tuesday. She will be greatly missed.
Linda came to the Office of the President after a long career in training and development. Before joining OP, Linda worked at UCSF where she contributed to a variety of training and development initiatives. Prior to that, Linda had an extensive career with the Longs Drugs Pharmacy chain here on the West Coast. Linda’s contributions here at the Office of the President were particularly impactful as she was one of the first official members of OP Local Human Resources, helping to launch the extremely popular OP Leadership Development Program as well as the staff Mentorship Program, both of which she helped me conceptualize, design, implement and manage. She tirelessly continued to evolve and strengthen these flagship programs after their initial launch.
I’m sure many of you know Linda through her leadership in these programs, but her contributions went far beyond, and UCOP will continue to benefit from her work well into the future. I personally thank her for her caring, effort and commitment.
When or if details of services for Linda become known via her family, we will share them. Meanwhile, please join me in reflecting on and acknowledging Linda’s contributions to UCOP.
