NON-SENATE ACADEMIC EMPLOYEES
April 20, 2005
ALL ACADEMICS AT UCSD
On March 16, 2005, Acting Senior Vice Chancellor Miller and Academic Senate Chair Tuzin announced the establishment of the joint Senate/Administration Task Force on Personnel Processes for Non-Senate Academic Employees. The task force has begun to meet and wishes to invite academic employees at large to provide input on the review process for non-Senate academic employees. We encourage you to comment on the issues described below, as well as any other issues you consider important for the task force to examine.
1) Are the required content of personnel files and standards for actions appropriate? Should the content or standards be modified for different titles or certain actions?
2) Who should have input into and final authority for personnel actions? Are the roles of academic deans and central campus committees such as the Committee on Academic Personnel (CAP), Project Scientist and Specialist Review Panel (PSSRP), and Academic Administrator/Coordinator Review Panel (AARP) appropriate? Should authority for certain series or actions within a series be delegated?
3) Is it appropriate that there be differences among the campus units, i.e. the General Campus, SIO, and SOM?
Please send your suggestions to the task force either by email (email@example.com) or by campus mail (mail code 0065). We are interested in hearing from all academics and particularly interested in hearing from the ORU's concerning the Research series and from the School of Medicine concerning the Adjunct Professor series. It would be most useful to the committee to receive comments before the end of May 2005.
We have listed the committee members below so that you may feel free to discuss the issues with any of us informally.
