A message from Mary Croughan, Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor
I am reaching out to encourage you to become involved in issues affecting the UC Davis community by applying for membership on a UC Davis Administrative Advisory Committee for the 2022-23 year. These Committees address topics such as the arts, child and family care, diversity, student services, and research, and provide an opportunity for all constituencies—Academic Senate and Academic Federation members, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students—to participate in governance of the campus.
It is important that all of these Advisory Committees have strong representation from all members of our campus community, so I sincerely hope that you will consider serving on one of them.
As a member of an Administrative Advisory Committee, you can ensure that your constituency's perspectives are well represented in the Committee's recommendations to the administration. You can also help representatives from other constituencies understand your interests and concerns and, in turn, learn more about their views of campus issues.
As indicated in our Principles of Community, we aspire to create an inclusive community and therefore committee members are selected based on the interest of applicants coupled with the desire to have each committee reflect multiple dimensions of diversity – for example, but not limited to, ethnicity, gender, student, staff, faculty, academic discipline, etc. – to inform administrative decision making.
I hope you will participate in this advisory system. An application form, a list of the committees with brief descriptions of their activities, and other information are available on the web at http://aac.ucdavis.edu/. The deadline to submit applications is Thursday, May 5, 2022. Thank you in advance for your interest and participation.
All the best,
Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor
