GET INVOLVED UC-WIDE AND MAKE AN IMPACT SYSTEMWIDE!
As the official voice of the UC graduate and professional students, UCGPC will nominate students to sit on UC systemwide committees. Systemwide committees confront issues in admissions policy, budget prioritization, and technology investments. Graduate and professional students must be represented in these committees.
Applications are due before November 3rd, 2022. Selected applicants will serve immediately and will regularly report to UCGPC.
Use the application linked below to apply. UCGPC accepts applications on a rolling deadline based on each committee’s meeting and recruitment schedule. Suppose you apply for a committee that is currently not recruiting. In that case, we will hold your application until there is an opening.
Systemwide committees meetings will have different locations, times, and frequency. Most committee meetings are held at the UCOP offices in Oakland, CA, although many committees meet via conference calls. The UC Office of the President covers travel for students who travel to UCOP offices. Students must be in good academic standing, and UCOP will confirm students’ status with their respective campuses before the appointment.
Graduate student representatives are needed for the following committees:
UC National Center for Free Speech and Civic Engagement
Student Mental Health Oversight Committee
UC Education Abroad PRogram Advisory Committee
UC Code of Conduct for Trademark Licensees
Global Climate Leadership Council and UC Sustainability Steering Committee
University Committee on Planning & Budget
University Committee on Research Policy
University Committee on Preparatory Education

University Committee on International Education
University Committee on Educational Policy
University Committee on Academic Freedom
University Committee on Academic Computing and Communications
University Committee on Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Equity
Coordinating Committee on Graduate Affairs
Board of Admissions and Relations with Schools
Academic Planning Council
Requirements: Systemwide Committee Representatives will serve one-year terms. A candidate must currently be graduate or professional student at one of the University’s ten campuses. At the time of application, the candidate must be in good academic and disciplinary standing and remain in good standing throughout their appointment as a representative. Applicants should be able to attend all committee meetings and participate in student representative conference calls as scheduled.
