Council of UC Staff Assemblies (CUCSA)

UC Staff Engagement Survey

UC's fifth systemwide staff engagement survey launches May 10th. This survey was developed by the Council of University of California Staff Assemblies (CUCSA). During the week of May 10th, a representative sample of staff members will receive an email from Willis Towers Watson, the firm conducting the survey on UC's behalf. The survey closes on Friday, June 4th. If you're selected we hope you choose to participate!


The Council of University of California Staff Assemblies (CUCSA) is an assembly of staff dedicated to improving communications between UC administrators and staff, and between staff at UC locations. CUCSA advises and provides a staff perspective to decision makers.

More information about CUCSA can be found on the Council of University of California Staff Assemblies website

CUCSA 2020-2021

Representatives from each campus's staff assembly or staff advisory board meet quarterly for 2 1/2 days to share organizational best practices, communicate, and collaborate on issues of concern for UC Staff. 

Each year, CUCSA organizes into work groups that focus on staff needs and concerns. This year, CUCSA has work groups on the following topics:

  • Fostering a Flexible Work Culture
  • Staff Basic Needs
  • Staff Advocacy (focus on compensation)

UCSC Representation at CUCSA

The Staff Advisory Board (SAB) at UCSC sends two delegates to CUCSA meetings each year. Typically, the current and past chairs of the SAB serve as junior and senior CUCSA delegates.
