An update on management bloat at UC

UCB professor emeritus Charles Schwartz has updated his data on UC management bloat. He finds “continuing outsized growth of the management cadre (defined as the employees classified in Senior Management Group and Management & Senior Professionals): their numbers grew by 252% over the 21 year period while total employee numbers grew by a mere 51%.”

The full report is available at:

There is also data broken out by campus. UC Davis has done a better job than UC as a whole at curtailing administrative growth in recent years, but bloat is still a problem at UCD.

Apart from other considerations, this administrative bloat has also become a serious problem for UC’s image with the Governor, the legislature and the public.
