Temporary Opportunities for Work (TOW)

As of December 2021, the Temporary Opportunity for Work (TOW) program is no longer active.

The Temporary Opportunities for Work (TOW) program offered temporary reassignments for career staff to host departments in other schools, colleges, and divisions that needed temporary assistance, on a full or part-time basis.

The TOW program was administered by HR's Temporary Employment Services (TES) team and provided an alternative that allowed host departments to temporarily meet operational needs while keeping Aggies from layoff/reduction-in-time.

TOW successfully served its role in identifying opportunities for work that kept UC Davis employees employed and performing critical work during the apex of COVID-19, and we appreciate everyone who worked so diligently to create and engage in this effort.
