My ANR Budget Update 2019-20 provided an overview of our budget challenges and described actions we have taken or may take in response to shrinking financial support from the state. Despite these budget pressures, providing market competitive compensation for staff and academics remains a top investment priority for UC ANR. People are our greatest asset; without quality people, we cannot achieve our research and extension mission.
I am happy to announce details of the annual salary programs for academics and staff for FY 2019-20.

Today (July 18) VP Glenda Humiston delivered an overview of UC ANR to the UC Board of Regents during their meeting at the UCSF–Mission Bay Conference Center.

The state's fiscal year 2019-20 budget will remain the same as FY18/19 for UC Office of the President (UCOP), of which UC ANR is a key component. Because we are required to compensate for $5 million in unfunded obligations (staff and academic salary and benefit increases), a flat budget is essentially a $5 million cut for UC ANR. That is on top of similar cuts for the past several years.
At this point, we no longer have money in reserve to minimize the impact. That is why we were recently forced to reduce funding for 4-H by $900,000. It's also why we had to announce last December that we could not recruit additional UC Cooperative Extension advisors.
The good news is you are...
