UCSF Senior Management Group
(Campus and UCSF Health)

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

Positions designated as Senior Management Group (SMG) provide leadership requiring the exercise of a high degree of independent judgment in the development of university-wide or campus-wide policy and program direction and accountability for long-term results.  

The President, as executive head of the University, has responsibility for the policies and programs governing the terms and conditions of employment for staff members who hold SMG positions, except for certain actions which are reserved to The Regents and Principal Officers of The Regents as set forth in the Bylaws and Standing Orders of The Regents, and except as delegated by the President to Chancellors, Laboratory Director, and the Executive Vice President—Business Operations.

Each campus has a designated SMG Coordinator who serves as the primary contact for all SMG members, responsible for interpreting policies, administering programs and coordinating efforts with Office of the President.

The UCSF SMG Coordinator function is housed within the campus UCSF Human Resources Executive Compensation Unit and provides centralized services to all UCSF SMG employees (Campus and UCSF Health).
