UCR Staff Assembly is a branch of the Council of University of California Staff Assemblies (CUCSA), which formed in 1974 to improve communications between UC administration and staff and among the staff of the individual campuses.

CUCSA presents the staff's perspectives and recommendations on management initiatives. CUCSA has also made presentations to the Regents on budget issues, student fee policies, capital programs and domestic partner benefits. Staff Assembly does not act as a collective-bargaining unit.
UCR Staff Assembly holds quarterly meetings. All career staff employees are members and are invited to attend. You are encouraged to run for an Executive Board position or become a member of a standing committee. Elections are held in the spring and terms run through the academic year.
The continuing Staff Assembly theme of Building the Future Together reflects the challenge of staying involved, informed and connected as we continue to be one of the fastest growing campuses in the UC system.
