New ANR academics to meet for programmatic orientation Oct. 27-29

Chris McDonald took in a field tour during the 2014 programmatic orientation.
All new ANR academics, please mark your calendars now for the 2015 Programmatic Orientation, which will be held Oct. 27, 28 and 29, 2015, at the Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center.

This orientation is open to all new UC Cooperative Extension advisors, UC Cooperative Extension specialists, academic coordinators, academic administrators and Agricultural Experiment Station faculty.

Join Associate Vice President Bill Frost and our new vice president to discuss the mission of UC ANR and our varied roles in California and the University, and see examples of successful research and outreach programs.  The program will begin at noon on Tuesday, Oct. 27, and end at noon on Thursday, Oct. 29. More details on the agenda and registration will be shared this summer.

In August 2014, 56 new academics who had joined ANR since 2009 met at the Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center to engage in discussions with colleagues and learn about the resources available through ANR. Evaluations of that orientation were very positive — 4.0 on a scale of 1 to 5.

For new academics who were unable to attend the 2014 workshop, and for those of you who have been hired recently — please mark your calendars now — and plan to join us Oct. 27-29.

If you have questions about the orientation, please contact Jan Corlett, chief of staff to the vice president, at or (510) 287-3343.
