New members elected to Staff Advisory Board
By Jennifer McNulty
Four new members and two incumbents were elected to the UCSC Staff Advisory
Board (SAB) this summer.
Well hold our quarterly brown-bag forums with
Chancellor Greenwood, and we hope to host quarterly staff forums
with representatives of the Executive Budget Committees
project teams, said Rachel Huff, incoming Staff Advisory
The group held its annual retreat in August to discuss priorities
for the coming year, said incoming SAB Chair Rachel Huff, business coordinator
of Physical Plant.
The board, established to promote
the well-being and interests of UCSC staff, will focus this year on
increasing its participation on campus committees for long-range planning
and transportation, said Huff.
The board will also focus on wellness issues, including workers
compensation and child care, and plans to monitor topics of concern
to staff, including the campus budget, health care, and parking. To
increase the boards visibility, SAB hopes to revamp its web site
and increase communication with the campus community, added Huff.
Well hold our quarterly brown-bag forums with Chancellor
Greenwood, and we hope to host quarterly staff forums with representatives

Its going to be a busy year for staff--and exciting.
In addition to meeting each fall and spring with Greenwood, SAB members
hope to hold quarterly meetings with Campus Provost and Executive Vice
Chancellor John Simpson or his designate.
More than 1,400 staff members returned ballots during the three-week
voting period to elect SAB representatives, said Huff. It was
the biggest turnout ever, she said, adding that 2,300 people work
