Why UCPath?

UCPath is improving the way that the University of California handles HR/payroll and other related business. Existing processes and technologies are not able to meet the needs of UC's complex and diverse employee population and changing business needs.

  • UC employees perform manual calculations, work-arounds, corrections, and significant paper processing.
