In support of the mission of the University of California it is the purpose of the Council of UC Staff Assemblies (CUCSA) to maintain and enhance communication within the University Community on matters of interest to staff employees in accordance with California laws and Regent policy.

The constituency of the Council is understood to be staff employees of the University of California. The Council is involved in matters of interest and concern to those who are not exclusively represented and may address matters not within the scope of representation for those exclusively represented.


CUCSA 2018 – 2019

The CUCSA delegation meets quarterly for 2 1/2 days to share organizational best practices, communicate and collaborate on issues of concern for UC Staff.

The 2018 – 19 meetings are:

This year, the delegation will be examining the following topics:

Succession Planning Workgroup
The University of California attracts and retains a diverse staff workforce. As locations plan for the future, we must develop succession planning strategies to prepare staff and leaders across the UC. With organizational development, talent management, and workforce planning, we are primed to develop succession planning resources and a toolkit to be used across the UC System. The scope of this workgroup is to review succession planning resources, including talent development tools and make recommendations how best to expand, improve, and communicate tools across the system.

Parental Bonding Leave Workgroup
While UC has made efforts to be a family-friendly employer through policies, benefits, resources and services, many staff struggle with understanding the offerings to parents: what is applicable to them and/or where to find information that might be helpful. This workgroup will review what the UC system is currently offering, determine whether and why it is or is not achieving optimal results, and make recommendations for improvement.

Expanded Internal Operations
Expanded workgroup to include sub groups identified below.

  • Website overhaul
  • Prepare a Presidential Scholarship process
