In the fall of 2019, UC ANR embarked on the 2019 reconfirmation process. VP Humiston asked UC ANR programmatic groups (listed below) to reconfirm the 2018 CE position proposals list -- in order to fill a limited, small number of CE positions. She asked if there were higher priorities/critical needs/emergency gaps that weren't on the 2018 list of 46 but should be? Those were added to this web page at the end of November 2019, using the template and criteria below. Any 2018 proposals that needed significant revisions were updated and re-posted below.
- Any proposal numbered above 46 was submitted as an emergency gap proposal during the 2019 reconfirmation process.
- The following proposals were updated as part of the 2019 reconfirmation process: Advisor #'s 1, 4, 5, 8, 12, 42; and Specialist # 35.
- # 18 Wildlife Management Area Advisor was already under recruitment.
From January - September 2018 initiated the 2018 CE position call, soliciting proposals for Cooperative Extension (CE) advisor and specialist positions. The call aimed to identify positions for strengthening and rebuilding the ANR network to address programmatic gaps and emerging needs. Due to the budget situation the release of approved positions was on hold until the fall of 2019; VP Humiston's 2018 announcement.

20 Youth, Families, and Communities Area Advisor
Solano and Napa counties are ethnically and socio-economically diverse communities with significant inequities in health, wellness and youth development, which have disparate impacts on lower-income and disadvantaged populations and communities. The advisor will develop a dynamic research and outreach program focused on nutrition, health, wellness and equity in Solano and Napa counties by partnering with existing UCCE programs and with governmental and community organizations. In addition, the advisor will provide academic leadership and oversight for the 4-H Youth Development Program and its expansion to underserved communities in Solano County. A minimum of a master's degree in Public Health, Education, Community Development, Child/Human Development, or related social science degree is required. The advisor will be housed in the UCCE Capitol Corridor office in Fairfield, providing a much needed academic presence in Solano County which currently houses zero advisors, and will report to the UCCE Capitol Corridor Director. This advisor will integrate and collaborate with relevant ANR teams including the Positive Youth Development and Healthy Living / Healthy Lifestyles program teams, and the Youth, Families & Communities Statewide Program.
