Academic Liaisons Prepare Academics and Departments for UCPath

Presentations to academic departments will convey academics’ perspective

A group of Academic Senate and Academic Federation members are helping UC Davis academic departments prepare for the implementation of UCPath. Nine members across a wide variety of colleges and schools at UC Davis have been selected from nominations made by deans’ offices to serve as Academic Liaisons. The Liaisons will present to department faculty and other academics on the changes coming with UCPath implementation.

“Academic Liaisons serve an important role in UCPath implementation” said Binnie Singh, assistant vice provost of Academic Affairs. “As academics, they are able to convey the perspective of how life in the academic departments, programs and centers will change as we move forward under UCPath. Core academic personnel processes continue as they have been, but some of the business system processes supporting them are changing. We want our academics to hear this from their peers.”
