APO has generated many new events to benefit faculty and other academic appointees over the past few years. Many of these events are useful to academic personnel recruitment or advancement. Some focus on leadership or mentoring, or other aspects of career development. Others focus on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Some of the events we host are open to UC Merced staff and students, for instance, our monthly Leadership Hour events. If you have any questions about our events, please email VPAP@ucmerced.edu.
