ALL ACADEMICS AT UC SAN DIEGO
I am pleased to submit for formal campus review proposed revisions to UCSD Policy and Procedure Manual (PPM) 230-20, Appointment of Academic Personnel, and PPM 230-28, Academic Advancements and Reappointments. The proposed revised policies and a summary of the revisions are available at: http://academicaffairs.ucsd.edu/aps/policydev/index.html. These policies are currently being reviewed by the Academic Senate.
The proposed revisions include clarification of the criteria for appointment and advancement in the Professor of Practice series, and revisions suggested by the Academic Senate Task Force on Faculty Reward System II, including the addition of more detailed guidance concerning the criteria for accelerated advancement. Language has also been added to strengthen our policy on the evaluation of appointees proposed for consecutive no change actions.
Revisions to off-scale policy have been proposed, including updates to reflect recent systemwide Academic Personnel Manual (APM) changes, which extend eligibility for off-scale salaries to all academic series covered by PPM 230-20 and PPM 230-28, and to merge information currently provided in PPM 230-41, Academic Off-Scale Salaries into relevant sections of PPM 230-20 and PPM 230-28.
Finally, revisions have been proposed which are intended to streamline processes; among these are proposals to remove the requirement to re-justify market off-scale salaries, and to make the process for evaluating assistant-level appointees more straightforward.
If you have any comments or questions regarding the proposed revisions to PPM 230-20 and PPM 230-28, or the proposed rescission of PPM 230-41, please contact Kelly Lindlar, director of Academic Policy Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 30, 2015.
