Academic Senate Forum

Post Employment Benefits Discussion

As many of us are aware the University is struggling with managing a large unfunded liability in the retirement system. In March 2009, President Yudof appointed a Task Force on Post Employment Benefits. Its report was recently released to the UC community via at the Future of UC Retirement Benefits website: http://universityofcalifornia.edu/sites/ucrpfuture/task-force-inf/

The myriad of web links provided on the UC site have been summarized on the UC Academic Senate and Davis Division home page: http://academicsenate.ucdavis.edu/

The Academic Senate has been asked to respond to the Task Force’s recommendations. The Davis Division must report to the UC Academic Senate by mid-November. Starting next week, the Divisional Committees will be asked to deliberate. More broadly, the Davis Division has opened a Web forum to allow immediate input to advise its leadership. In addition, the first Representative Assembly meeting will be held November 1, 2010, ARC Ballroom, 2:10-4:00 PM. We have invited the Chair and Vice Chair of the UC Academic Senate and may add others to speak with participants as the Davis Division prepares to finalize its position.
