UC San Francisco staff member Nicholas Roznovsky has been elected Chair-Elect of the UCSF Staff Assembly, an association of more than 7,000 university and medical center employees who are not represented by a union or other bargaining unit. He was chosen through a campus-wide election for the group's 2017-2018 Executive Board, the results of which were announced on July 11.
Roznovsky joined the department as its first communications officer in 2013. He has also served on the UCSF Staff Assembly Executive Board since 2014, first supporting communications and marketing efforts and then as the group's secretary. After serving a one-year term as chair-elect, he will hold the position of chair during the 2018-2019 academic year and then continue his work on the board as immediate past president through June 2020.
The UCSF Staff Assembly was established by the chancellor, under authority granted by the UC Regents, to serve an advisory function on matters of staff concern. Their mission is to enhance communication among its members and advise the chancellor and campus administrators on matters of mutual concern. They also facilitate communication with staff counterparts on other UC campuses through participation in the Council of University of California Staff Assemblies (CUCSA).
Full results from the election can be found on the UCSF Staff Assembly website.
