Introducing the UC Core Competencies
The UC Core Competency Model serves as a foundational tool for assessing and developing staff, managers and leaders throughout the UC system.
Over the past two years, the UC Talent Management Consortium Workgroup — a collaborative team of systemwide leaders and staff — has worked to review and update this model to reflect how the university views talent and to promote behaviors that reflect UC’s vision and values. In June 2020, UC’s new model was endorsed by UC’s chief human resource officers.
Highlights of the 2020 UC Core Competency Model include:
- Core competencies for all UC employees, regardless of role or location
- Behavioral indicators and/or proficiency levels for individual contributors and managers
- Clear, consistent, common language that includes observable behaviors for measurement
The updated UC Core Competency Model will be integrated into our new performance appraisal process, STEP: Staff Talent Evaluation Process. By using language shared with our systemwide colleagues to evaluate our performance and encourage professional growth, we will lay the foundation for the culture we want to build at UCOP.
