PPM 230-200-0 Policy


It is the policy of the University to evaluate objectively and thoroughly each candidate for appointment, promotion, or merit increase.  Promotions and merit increases are not automatic, but are based on merit.


Every academic appointee shall be reviewed at least every five years.  The Chancellor, with the advice of the Academic Senate, shall determine the level and type of review and shall develop appropriate implementing procedures.


The Chancellor may exempt from this five-year review faculty Deans (see APM - 240), full-time Faculty Administrators (see APM - 246), and those members of the Senior Management Group (“SMG”) with an underlying academic appointment.
