Jo Mackness, staff advisor designate to the Regents

Jo Mackness, departing staff advisor to the UC Regents and associate vice chancellor of Residential & Student Service Programs in UC Berkeley’s Division of Student Affairs, encourages anyone committed to serving UC staff to apply. “The Staff Advisor role has been a terrific opportunity to hear from and elevate staff voices from across the system. We’ve worked alongside Systemwide HR to underscore with Regents the critical role staff play in supporting the University’s mission.”

Staff advisors participate in open sessions and designated committees of the Board of Regents, representing their colleagues in UC Board of Regents deliberations and to decision-makers at the Office of the President. Staff advisors serve as non-voting members of designated Regents’ committees; they attend and participate directly in committee and board meetings throughout their term of service. They also meet extensively with staff to understand their needs and learn from peer experiences.

All non-represented and represented staff or non-Senate academic employees who have at least five years of UC service are eligible to apply. The application period ends Friday, April 1, 2024, for a two-year term that runs from July 2024 to June 2026.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to represent and serve your colleagues!
