Advisory Board

Home / Campus / ( Published on 2014-05-26 )

The HR Advisory Board advises the AVC HR on priorities, processes, performance, budget, and services of UCSF Human Resources. Its mission is to:

  • Provide input on service levels
  • Provide advice on service delivery
  • Advise on new and/or anticipated customer needs, desires, or requirements
  • Support the planning for and implementation of proposed process, policy, and technology improvements for campus rollout
  • Provide input on budget and review recharge rate proposals
  • Ensure alignment with UCSF-wide goals and objectives

The Advisory Board consists of nine representatives of client departments. Members represent all stakeholders of the UCSF community, including clinical departments, basic science departments, SFGH, Deans’ Offices, FAS, the EVCP, and the Academic Senate. Members serve two years, but some charter members will serve three years for continuity. Read the full HR Advisory Board Charter here.

The HR Advisory Board may convene standing or ad hoc subcommittees to address specific topics in depth, such as the standing HR Funding Model Subcommittee. Subcommittees may include members of the Advisory Board, other stakeholders and customers, and HR staff.
