I joined Staff Assembly to make sure my voice is heard and see that staff issues are addressed. Having worked on campus for many years, I wish I joined Staff Assembly sooner! If you want to know what's going on with staff salaries, benefits, or any UC policy Staff Assembly has a collective knowledge that spans decades. I'm also excited to join a group that has other hard working UCSB staff I may not have otherwise met before.

I decided to join Staff Assembly because I wanted to participate in the UC community beyond my job. I enjoyed being involved in a sorority during my undergraduate education and so once I started to work on campus I began to look into ways I could contribute as a staff member. Staff Assembly has been a great opportunity for me to become more involved at UCSB and play a role in events and issues that are of concern to myself and other staff members.

I joined Staff Assembly to listen to what staff need, and to see that staff issues are addressed. It's incredibly valuable to meet, and to find a community on campus, made up of people that I may not have met otherwise. Through our Staff Assembly I have also had the honor of being one of our systemwide CUCSA representatives ('21-'22 & '22-'23), where we are able to interact with staff from across the UC system and influence positive changes for staff across all UC locations.
