Davis Enterprise: UC Center Sacramento Welcomes State Senator Lois Wolk As 2018 Governance Fellow

UC Center Sacramento Welcome State Senator Wolk As 2018 Governance Fellow

Sacramento, CA – The UC Center Sacramento (UCCS) is pleased to announce that former State Senator Lois Wolk will serve as its 2018 Governance Fellow. 

Each year, UCCS appoints a prominent California public servant as its Governance Fellow. Prior Fellows have included former members of the legislature, officials elected to statewide office, and a justice of the state supreme court. Fellows alternate between Democratic and Republican party affiliation. 

"First in local government and later throughout her long service in both the state Assembly and Senate, Lois Wolk has distinguished herself as a thoughtful and energetic advocate for effective public policy," said Richard Kravitz, Director of the UC Center Sacramento. “She will be an outstanding resource and role model for the 150 or more UCCS students who will have the privilege of connecting with her.” 

Senator Wolk's dedication to public service has been recognized with numerous awards for her advocacy on behalf of families, seniors, clean water, environmental conservation, renewable energy, compassion at the end of life, and agriculture.  

UCCS is a teaching and policy research dissemination program of the University of California.  Its mission is to prepare California’s future leaders for careers in public service and to share knowledge in the interest of better public policymaking.  UCCS Governance Fellows provide guidance to UCCS undergraduates as they undertake coursework and internships at or near the Capitol. 

Senator Wolk’s term as 2018 Governance Fellow begins on January 1, 2018 continues through December 31, 2018.
