For the second year in a row, UC Riverside has been named among the “Most Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs.”

UCR’s Student Affairs Organization was one of only 15 selected for the annual report, which will be published in the March 3 edition of “Diverse: Issues in Higher Education” magazine. The institutions were not ranked in any order.

The survey, conducted with ACPA-College Student Educators International, focuses on workplace diversity, staffing practices, and work environment. It examines categories such as family friendliness, salary and benefits, and professional development opportunities in creating its list.

Brian Haynes, vice chancellor for student affairs, described collaborative campus partnerships and open dialogue as key to inspiring and empowering the campus’ diverse student body.

“Our organization seeks to connect with our staff and students on a personal level that not only creates a safe and welcoming environment, but one in which feedback is welcomed,” he said. “I am proud of our unwavering commitment to diversity, inclusion and social justice. 

Student Affairs oversees a number of services in the areas of campus life, ethnic and gender programs, Student Recreation Center, and the Highlander Union Building.
