The People Side

From info sessions to infographics…from web-based tutorials to instructor-led training…from website news briefs to targeted email messaging – our UCPath Change Management Team is focused on ensuring all our people have the information and skills required to effectively transition to UCPath. As a first step towards inclusion and transparency the Change Champion Network was established with strategic representations of all campus stakeholders.

Change Champion Network


UCPath addresses seven core processes: hire, job & position, leave & absence management, benefits, terminations and separations, pay, and general ledger. At UC San Diego each core process is addressed by a Future State Process Design (FSPD) Team of technical and business participants representing units and expertise from across Campus and Health Systems. These Teams are working to define and standardize each business process step, understand local workflow, identify roles required, and determine how information moves between UC San Diego and the UCPath Center.  View the FSPD Teams


Our UCPath Business Alignment Team is currently working on identifying the infrastructure and hierarchies here at UC San Diego in order to optimally align UCPath future business processes; execute appropriate system configuration to align with organizational structure and work flow; and determine a methodology and risk assessment process to demonstrate campus readiness for go/no-go deployment decision.
