AHR Current New and Information

Extending the Academic Advancement Clock

The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the way in which each of us lives and works. UC ANR academics have had to modify their program, and some may have been negatively impacted. Implications of COVID-19 on one’s academic program are program-specific and continue to evolve. Understandably, academics have concerns about how the COVID-19 situation will affect research. UC policy allows an academic to request an extension of their academic advancement review due to implications caused by a natural disaster.  Please see announcement for full and complete details.

Compensation Strategy for CE Advisors – Updated October 2019

Attracting and retaining highly qualified academics is a top priority for UC ANR. One of the key goals of the 2016-2020 Strategic Plan is to address the competitiveness of the compensation for our Cooperative Extension Advisors.

To this end, in October 2017 VP Humiston approved a four-year equity plan to increase salaries of current and future CE Advisors. The plan is intended to ensure salaries of CE Advisors are better aligned with the labor market for comparable academic positions.

Using the UC salary scales for CE Specialists as a proxy for the labor market, target goals have been established for each rank and step of the CE Advisor salary scale. The difference between the target goals and the CE Advisors Salary Scale will be reduced over four years by increasing the UC ANR Adjusted Salary Scale for CE Advisors annually. 

Implementation each year of the four-year plan is at the discretion of the UC ANR Vice President and subject to the availability of funds.

In October 2019, VP Humiston approved implementation of Year 3 of the four-year equity plan. Although the FY 2019-20 state budget provided no increase to UC ANR’s budget, UC ANR continues to make a significant, permanent investment in CE Advisor salaries through this four-year compensation strategy.

The new ANR Adjusted Salary Scales for CE Advisors [] are effective October 1, 2019.

This CE Advisor salary equity adjustment program is separate and distinct from the academic merit and promotion process and UC-wide increases to academic salary scales.
