Brett Burns, the ASUCD Business Manager, will leave his position within the Association, as he has accepted a position as Senior Assistant Dean for Administration at the UC Davis School of Law.
Burns joined ASUCD in February 2012 as Business Manager, working with various members of the Senate table and Unit Directors to ensure financial stability within the Association, according to the ASUCD website.
Graduating in 1995, Burns is also a UC Davis alumnus, with a bachelor’s in sociology and economics with an emphasis in organizational management.
He was also involved in the development of the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC) and previously served as the Executive Director of Auxiliary Services.
“Since joining UC Davis in 1998, Brett has contributed his time and talent to improving student leadership, student governance and student success in a variety of capacities,” said ASUCD President Rebecca Sterling in a Feb. 19 email to members of the Association. “Brett’s contributions will be missed, but we are confident that his dedication to improving student success and UC Davis will continue in his new leadership role.”
Brett is likely to make his transition part-time in March, and will then begin working at the School of Law, effective April 1, according to the email.
Sterling and Burns are currently developing a process to select an interim manager and replacement. This will be announced shortly.
