What Matters to Me and Why

A May 14 talk by men’s basketball head coach Russell Turner concluded the 2013-14 series designed to build and strengthen bonds between people who teach, learn and work together daily, and to foster understanding of how each of us embraces the UCI values.

What We Do

The Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Staff (CACS) is charged with advocating for staff by facilitating communication between staff and the chancellor, with the larger goal of promoting career development, mitigating problems and creating a positive work environment. Members are selected carefully so that they bring the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to contribute to the effectiveness of this active working group. Upon appointment to CACS, committee members select and become active in one of the CACS subcommittee workgroups. Committee members are expected to make every attempt to attend all meetings, and to limit their absences to no more than three meetings each year.
