New UCCE positions process and timeline announced

Because of the state's acknowledgement that growing the UC ANR academic footprint is of great benefit to the state, recruitment of UCCE Advisor and UCCE Specialist positions will resume. Earlier this year, the Program Council recommended release of 20 positions (15 UCCE Advisor plus 5 UCCE Specialist positions). Ten of these positions have been released for recruitment; the remaining positions will be released soon. Program Council will review other currently identified needs in September and advance additional recommendations to Vice President Humiston. Up to 75 additional UCCE Advisor and 18 additional UCCE Specialist positions are expected to be released in the next 12 months.

The currently identified needs reflect a position call process conducted in 2018, plus vacancies since that time. With new support from the state, we must carefully examine our needs for the future. To this end, UC ANR will be conducting a position call for UCCE Advisor and UCCE Specialist position proposals. This process will be expedited as follows, with a goal to identify priority positions early next year. A timeline, below, is followed by greater detail of the process.

Please note that the processes and timelines below are for UCCE Specialist and UCCE Advisor positions. Identification of all other positions – academic and staff – to be filled as a result of new state funding will use different processes.
