Councils and Task Forces
Leadership Council is a forum for academic and administration supervisors and managers across the university. The overall objective is to foster an environment for creativity and information sharing, building new knowledge, creating alignment, and developing comprehensive solutions among UC Merced’s management.
This task force was appointed in the spring of 2009 by then-Chancellor Steve Kang with the charge of developing and supporting the capacity for UC Merced faculty to conduct community-engaged scholarship (CES). Connecting UC Merced's research with the community is one way the university can bring value to communities and society.
