Academic Life

The University of California is committed to providing effective policies, benefits and services to help faculty navigate their career goals while meeting personal responsibilities.  At UC Merced we recognize the challenge of balancing professional and personal responsibilities.   We understand that academic life, like life in general, has different phases that present its own challenges and impact career success.

The mission of Faculty Life within the Academic Personnel Office is to support the University’s academic mission by providing programs and services that enhance work environment and culture.  Our goal is to help faculty reach a comfortable balance in life by providing tools and resources, supporting social connections, fostering learning communities and building collaborative partnerships while aligning to University Initiatives.
