ALL ACADEMICS AT UCSD
The University has issued revised Academic Personnel Policy 340 on Continuing Educators. The Continuing Educator title will replace the current Continuing Education Specialist title. These professional educators design and implement continuing education programs and classes for the public, mainly through University Extension.
The basis of the new title was a proposal developed by the UNEX Deans, who requested increased flexibility in administering Extension. As part of that plan, a new salary range for each level of the Continuing Educator titles will provide increased salary flexibility and is designed to enhance career opportunities. In addition, under APM 340-10, an incentive plan to reward exceptionally meritorious performance may be authorized. Also included is revised APM 662, Appendix B-45, on additional compensation for University Extension academic appointees, such as Academic Coordinators and Continuing Educators, who plan University Extension courses and who also teach in University Extension programs.
The policies, the salary range, and the transition guidelines are effective May 1, 2005 and are available on the Web at:
