UC ANR recruits for final round of UCCE positions approved in 2014

UC ANR is in its sixth and final round of hiring for Cooperative Extension advisor and specialist positions released in December 2014. The 43 positions were released for recruitment in phases over time to enable Human Resources to accomplish the search and hiring process in an orderly fashion and to allow leadership to evaluate ANR's resources on a real-time basis, deal with unexpected changes in staffing and address unanticipated issues as they arise. 

Round 6 (Fall 2016)

  • Area Desert Livestock Advisor (Imperial, Riverside, San Bernardino)
  • Area Forestry & Natural Resources Advisor (Sutter-Yuba, Butte, Nevada)
  • Area Livestock & Range Advisor (Ventura, Santa Barbara)
  • Area Dairy Systems Advisor (Sonoma, Marin, Mendocino)
  • Biometeorology Specialist (College of Agricultural and Environmental Science, UC Davis)

For the 2016 call for UCCE positions, Program Council has reviewed the 138 positions proposed and forwarded its recommendations to VP Glenda Humiston, who will announce in December the future rounds of hiring. The approved positions will be announced in ANR Update.

Public comments on proposed UCCE positions accepted until July 11

ANR's 2016 Call for CE Positions has entered the program area/unit review phase, May 5 – Aug. 1, 2016. During this time, the program teams, the ANR-affiliated colleges and professional school, and the regional groups of county/multi-county directors and Research and Extension Center directors will conduct reviews.  For the proposals under their purview, the reviewers will 1) rate (high, medium or “this can wait”); 2) prioritize their highly rated positions (up to five) and 3) provide concise rationale.

The public comment period remains open until July 11, 2016.

Submitted CE position proposals can be viewed on the call web page http://ucanr.edu/2016callforpositions. To see the position description, click the proposal title link. In addition, the full call, including the updated position proposal template as well as the process flowchart timeline and criteria documents are posted as well.

Filling critical academic positions remains a top priority for ANR. Over the past several years, more than 90 CE advisors and CE specialists have been hired, and there are 45 more recruitments approved. New 2016 position proposals should identify additional crucial positions.

The program area/unit review phase is May 5 - August 1, 2016. During this time, the Programs Teams, the ANR-affiliated colleges and professional school, and the regional groups of County/Multi-county Directors and Research and Extension Center Directors will conduct reviews, by doing the following  for the proposals under their purview: 1) rate (high, medium, “this can wait”); 2) prioritize their highly rated positions (up to 5); and 3) provide concise rationale.

The approved submitters are the Program Team Leaders, the Executive Associate Deans, and the one person from each of the regional groups.  These submitters will be provided a reviewer orientation in early May, and the presentation will be posted on the position call webpage afterwards. The public comment period remains open until July 11, 2016.

Submitted CE position proposals can be viewed on thecall web page http://ucanr.edu/2016callforpositions. Click the proposal title link to see the description.

2016 call for Cooperative Extension positions released

Colleagues,

Continuing our commitment to deploying Cooperative Extension (CE) specialists and advisors to address critical issues, ANR is soliciting proposals for these CE positions. The new 2016 call aims to identify positions for strengthening and rebuilding the ANR network to address programmatic gaps and emerging needs. The call, including the updated position proposal template as well as the process flowchart timeline and criteria documents, is posted at http://ucanr.edu/2016callforpositions.

The online position-proposal submittal process will be open from Jan. 12 to May 5 at 5 p.m. to allow as much time as possible for internal consultation and discussions with ANR stakeholders in all program areas. We expect and strongly encourage engaging external stakeholders – including commodity groups, cooperating programs, agency partners, community groups, and others – to explicitly discuss priority needs for positions.

Filling critical academic positions is a top priority for ANR. Since the beginning of 2012, ANR has hired 86 advisors and specialists, and has 45 approved positions under recruitment or to be recruited in 2016. This list is posted on the 2016 call website. New 2016 position proposals should identify additional crucial positions.

The resources released through retirements and separations continue to enable us to hire new advisors and specialists. As with the current recruitments, we will remain nimble with future hiring in phases over time to enable us to accomplish the search and hiring process in an orderly fashion, evaluate resources on a real-time basis, deal with unexpected changes in staffing, and address unforeseen critical gaps as they emerge.

Sincerely,

Glenda Humiston
Vice President

July 21 public comment on UCCE positions closes

The period for public comment on the 123 proposed new UCCE positions closes July 21. 

ANR leadership strongly encourages engaging external stakeholders in the process, including commodity groups, cooperating programs, agency partners, community groups and others to explicitly discuss priority needs for positions. They are invited to review and leave comments at http://ucanr.edu/2014CallforPositions.

To comment on a proposal, find the position at the bottom of http://ucanr.edu/2014CallforPositions. Above the list there is a search tool. Click the proposal title link and write in the “comments” text box. If desired, stakeholders may include their  title and/or organization.

The value of the comments is not in the quantity but the quality. These comments are not being used as votes. One collective set of thoughtful comments from an organization or group that explain why the position is important based on filling a critical need means more than an overwhelming number of comments that simply state support. Comments are publicly available and will be reviewed by the review teams, UC ANR Program Council and Vice President Allen-Diaz.
