2012-2014 Staff Advisor to The Regents

All eligible UC staff and non-Senate academic employees who are interested in serving as the 2012-2014 Staff Advisor to the UC Board of Regents may apply through March 2, 2012, at 5 p.m. One new Staff Advisor Designate will be selected each year to serve a two-year term—the first year as Staff Advisor Designate and the second year as Staff Advisor. The UC President, in consultation with the Chairman of the Board, will make the selection of the new Staff Advisor Designate.

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.

The current staff advisors to the Regents are Penelope "Penny" Herbert, manager in the Department of Clinical Operations, UC Davis Health System, whose two-year term will expire in June; and, Kevin Smith, chief financial and compliance officer for the UCLA Chancellor's organization, who joined the board in July 2011.
