The University's goals for its staff are twofold: to build a workforce that reflects the diversity of the people of California, and to attract and retain the highest-quality workforce by offering competitive compensation, which includes salary and benefits.
The first of these goals is outlined in the University's diversity policy, which the Board of Regents adopted in 2007. The second goal was adopted by the Regents in 2005 as part of a 10-year plan to bring salaries and benefits for all employees to market levels. This goal recognizes that the quality of academic, management and staff personnel is essential for maintaining the excellence of the University and enabling it to achieve its mission of education, research and public service. Although the University was able to fund staff salary increases from 2005-06 to 2007-08, implementation of the broader Regents' plan to achieve comparable pay has been delayed for staff due to the ongoing state fiscal crisis.
The indicators here parallel in many respects those in the previous chapter on faculty. They describe the size and composition of UC's staff workforce, its age distribution, and compensation.
