Where applicable, this notification should be sent via the appropriate dean or director.

c.         The Senior Vice Chancellor-Academic Affairs will notify the Senior Vice Chancellor-Academic Affairs of the prospective appointee’s home campus that a department is interested in one of their appointees.

If the prospective intercampus transferee is the department’s final choice and the appropriate peer review and approval of the appointment by the Senior Vice Chancellor-Academic Affairs have been completed, the Senior Vice Chancellor- Academic Affairs will write the Chancellor or the Senior Vice Chancellor- Academic Affairs of the home UC campus at least ten working days before the formal offer of appointment is made to the intended transferee.

a.         If an intercampus transfer involves a principal investigator or co- investigator of an extramurally funded contract or grant, and the investigator wishes to transfer the contract or grant or any of the equipment funded by the contract or grant to the hiring campus, the matter must be discussed at the earliest possible opportunity with the contract and grant administrator on the hiring campus.
