Build your leadership skills while serving colleagues on the OPSA Steering Committee

The OP Staff Assembly (OPSA) supports, advances, champions, and protects the interests of staff at the University of California, Office of the President, by encouraging communication between staff, the administration and other members of the university community, in accordance with California laws and Regental policy. Our activities provide forums where staff at all levels can discuss issues of mutual concern, and offer opinions and recommendations on policies, processes and programs.

Perspectives from OPSA members

Wondering if the OPSA Steering Committee is a good fit for you? Here’s what some current members have said:

  • Nicola Gruen: “I have been serving on the OPSA Steering Committee since 2020. It allows me to be connected to a community of passionate people who thrive on making a difference for UCOP staff. I encourage you to add your name to the pool to either participate as a member or serve on a committee.”
  • Erica Stevenson: “I work at UCPath as a benefits associate. This is my first year serving on the OPSA Steering Committee and I’m also a junior CUCSA delegate. I joined OPSA to be able to support staff so they could bring their concerns and questions to a safe space. It is important for staff to be heard, and it is my passion to be a voice for them. I have enjoyed the chance to be a part of OPSA to show my colleagues at UCPath that we have opportunities to support each other.”
