UCPath is the University of California’s priority program to implement a comprehensive payroll, benefits, human resources and academic personnel solution for all UC employees.

Thank You and Happy Holidays

Preparing for UCPath has been, and continues to be, a monumental project. It can’t happen without dedicated people like you. From training to transactions, you are a critical component of this endeavor —the largest administrative project in UC’s history.

With so much behind us, there is also much ahead — we’ve only just begun. The new year will bring UCPath’s new processes and procedures, new questions, and new way of doing everyday transactions. Together, we will navigate this new system with success.

Thank you for being a part of this team. Thank you for your time and talent. Thank you for your patience and for the work you do every day to ensure people get paid. We at the UCI UCPath Project Team are grateful for you and wish you a happy holiday along with a joyous new year.
