2018 Call for Positions

ANR is soliciting proposals for Cooperative Extension (CE) advisor and specialist positions. This call aims to identify positions for strengthening and rebuilding the ANR network to address programmatic gaps and emerging needs.

 

There is a new position development process – for the complete process and timeline refer to 2018 CE positions flowchart.

Goals:

  • It is designed to be a consultative process with opportunity for input from UC ANR academics and clientele/stakeholders.
  • Those involved in position development are expected to take a collaborative approach and statewide perspective to identifying critical needs, and looking forward to emerging challenges.
  • The goal is have a manageable number of priority positions proposed, relative to funding realities.
  • The new process increases success rate for proposed positions given each group agrees on priority positions for submittal.

Phased Approach:

  • The advisor and specialist processes each have three phases with groups working collaboratively to develop proposals, and reviewing earlier proposals to add proposals that they think are higher priority.
  • Each proposal development phase is intended to include internal consultation and external input from ANR stakeholders. We expect and strongly encourage ANR academics to engage with external stakeholders, including commodity groups, cooperating programs, agency partners, community groups, and others to explicitly discuss priority needs to for positions. Groups of related program areas and campus-based departments should discuss and develop complimentary position proposals to strengthen the ANR network.
  • You can communicate with the people who are able to submit positions and work collaboratively with them in these efforts. 
  • For development phase one, to find out about the proposals in draft and which County Director or Department Chair to contact see the proposal ideas subpage on the left navigation.
