I am reaching out to encourage you to become involved in issues affecting the UC Davis community by applying for membership on a UC Davis Administrative Advisory Committee for the 2024-25 year.

  • Child and Family Care
  • Conflict of Interest
  • Council on Student Affairs and Fees
  • Course Materials and Services Fee and Miscellaneous Fees
  • Disability Issues
  • Media Board
  • Mondavi Center

It is important that all of these Advisory Committees have strong representation from all members of our campus community, so I sincerely hope that you will consider serving on one of them.  

As a member of an Administrative Advisory Committee, you can ensure that your constituency's perspectives are well represented in the committee's recommendations to the administration. You can also help representatives from other constituencies understand your interests and concerns and, in turn, learn more about their views of campus issues.  

As indicated in our Principles of Community, we aspire to create an inclusive community and therefore committee members are selected based on the interest of applicants coupled with the desire to have each committee reflect multiple dimensions of diversity – for example, but not limited to, ethnicity, gender, student, staff, faculty, academic discipline, etc. – to inform administrative decision making.  

The application form, a list of the committees with brief descriptions of their activities, and additional details are available at The deadline to submit applications is Wednesday, May 1, 2024.

I hope you will participate in an advisory committee and thank you in advance for your interest.

All the best,

Mary Croughan

Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor
