Position Summary
Serves as chief deputy to the Executive Director, IMPAC, and Chief of Staff, Public Affairs Division, managing a wide range of highly visible, politically sensitive, legally complex issues in an evolving arena. Works on significant, strategic issues and problems requiring political sensitivity, where analysis of circumstances and information requires an in-depth evaluation of factors. Supports the Division's work in promoting the President's priorities and initiatives--including but not limited to an ongoing advocacy campaign to promote the public value of UC--by independently using and applying in-depth knowledge and experience in the specific policy field on projects that have systemwide impact. Uses advanced professional concepts and organization objectives to address and resolve complex policy issues.

Reporting to the Chief of Staff and Executive Director, the incumbent is responsible for general oversight of IMPAC's issues management and policy analysis function, and the development of policy content and coordination in support of the President's priorities and initiatives. The Director also provides legislative policy analysis on state and federal bills.

The Director oversees IMPAC's issues management function under the direction of the Chief of Staff and Executive Director. In this capacity, the Director supports the Chief of Staff and Executive Director and other Public Affairs leadership in the development of and coordination on strategic policies and high-priority initiatives, including, but not limited to, those related to the President's Initiatives and priority projects, and others as needed.

The Director also has responsibility for identifying and/or developing content and strategy on the broad policy issues that inform the University's proactive policy agenda. To accomplish this, the Director collaborates with the IMPAC team, Governmental Relations, UCOP subject matter experts, campus experts, and others to identify and work on broad policy issues likely to be of significant interest to the University, such as responding to sexual assault and sexual violence.

As a member of IMPAC's leadership team and in coordination with the Director for Legislative Policy, the Director oversees the work of four coordinators, has a clear grasp of the issues and legislation that the coordinators in this area work on, and has unit management responsibilities including workload management and participation in the evaluation of coordinator performance.

This role requires the utmost discretion, ability to grasp the overall context while paying great attention to detail, and the ability to communicate and execute the Division's and the President's objectives and priorities.
