Welcome to the Academic Personnel Office

The Academic Personnel Office (APO) leads and serves a diverse and internationally renowned academic community. 

APO is a dedicated team in support of all academic employees on campus. Whether you need guidance on University of California policy, help with navigating UCR policies and processes, or assistance with employment matters, we are here to help. Below are just some of the services we provide to the campus and the academic community.

In accordance with UC Riverside's Coronavirus (COVID-19) response, the Academic Personnel Office is closed and our operations will be conducted remotely via Zoom, phone and email.
