2021 Call for CE Positions

The 2021 CE Position Call launched August 23, 2021 to identify UCCE Advisor and UCCE Specialist positions to be released over the next 12 months.

Here is the link to the new 2021 CE position call process flowchart and details. 

As in the past, we will be talking to our community partners and other stakeholders to identify the most pressing needs to prioritize the next round of hiring. We won’t just refill past positions, instead we must identify positions to address California’s emerging and future needs. Submittal groups, listed below, are expected to seek stakeholder input and work collaboratively across UC ANR units to make the best use of submission restrictions. Review and consideration of UC ANR thematic cluster areas for hires is encouraged (see below) given building capacity in these areas is a priority to UC ANR; these documents may be updated during this process.

Rebuilding the UC Cooperative Extension footprint, to address California's emerging and future needs, is made possible by the historic 2021-22 state budget increase. We are extremely grateful for the support and look forward to working with our partners to leverage these resources.

While this state budget increase will allow UC ANR to hire more people and achieve greater impact, we will continue seeking funding from additional sources to support the appropriate number of people with expertise needed to consistently and significantly improve the lives of all Californians.
