2016 Call for Positions
On December 14, 2016 UC ANR Vice President Humiston announced the the release of 26 CE positions from the 2016 call for a new round of hiring over the next two years. This new release continues the commitment for hiring to exceed projected turnover, thus achieving the goal of academic growth. And, as funding becomes available, UC ANR will consider additional positions.
January 12, 2016 solicited proposals for Cooperative Extension (CE) advisor and specialist positions in the ANR Update. The call identified positions for strengthening and expanding the UC ANR network to address programmatic gaps and emerging needs. Below this public webpage displays all 138 new CE position proposals (there is a search tool to assist in finding proposals).
The online submittal process was open from January 12 – May 5 (5:00 PM) to allow as much time as possible for internal consultation and external input from UC ANR stakeholders in all program areas. Submissions were accepted from the following official submitter groups:
- Strategic Initiative Leaders
- Program Team Leaders
- County and Multicounty Partnership Directors List
- Executive Associate Deans
The Review Phase was completed May 5 – August 1. All proposals were reviewed. The program area and unit reviews were conducted by the Program Teams; geographic groups of County/Multicounty Partnership and Research and Extension Center Directors, and the UC ANR affiliated colleges and school. These groups prioritized and provided rationale for the position proposals under their purview. This input was used to inform UC ANR Program Council’s recommendations and ultimately the UC ANR Vice President’s decisions. More information about the review process is available in the review orientation.
The public comment period was open Jan. 12 through July 11, 2016. Comments can be viewed by clicking the position links below. Comments were reviewed by the review groups, Program Council and the Vice President.

- Area 4-H Youth Development Advisor – Butte and Glenn Counties (pdf), uploaded 05/04/2016 by Randall Mutters
We, the Butte County 4-H Council Officers, believe it is very important that a 4-H Youth Development Advisor be found for Butte County. Our County 4-H club program desires to provide opportunities for all of the county’s youth to benefit from the 4-H learn- by-doing motto. A 4-H Advisor would use his/her expertise to collaborate and coordinate with other youth organizations, as well as other ethnic groups in our county. This collaboration, in turn, would broaden the enrollment to levels of State 4-H compliance for diversity, as well as youth development research.
Moreover, by partnering with other organizations, a 4-H Advisor would unite a greater amount of young people to be challenged and to take advantage of every opportunity 4-H has to offer, so that they can become good and productive citizens.
Thank you for your time and consideration on this important matter,
Butte County 4-H Council Officers:
