VPAA 13-09
March 24, 2014
 
2014/2015 Faculty Personnel Action Dates
 
 
To All Faculty, Staff, and Administrators:
 
In accordance with Sections 13.5, 14.5 and 15.4 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and upon the recommendation of the University Faculty Personnel Committee, I hereby approve the attached 2014/2015 dates for submission of periodic evaluations and performance reviews to the Department Personnel Committee, the College Personnel Committee, and the University Faculty Personnel Committee, as appropriate.
 
The complete schedule of faculty personnel actions for AY 2014/2015 is attached to this memorandum.  It will also be posted on the Office of Academic Affairs (http://www.humboldt.edu/aavp/administrative-memoranda) web site and the Academic Personnel Services (APS) web site (www.humboldt.edu/aps/calendars.html).  The evaluation review process is scheduled on the basis of unalterable notification deadlines established by the CSU-CFA Collective Bargaining Agreement.  The deadlines are intended to allow sufficient time for careful review at each level and they cannot be extended. 
 
The Summary of Faculty Personnel Actions and Due Dates available on the APS website (http://www.humboldt.edu/aps/docs/RTP/Personnel_Actions&Due_Dates_Summary.pdf) provides further information about the RTP process and timelines.
 
Please refer to Appendix J of the Humboldt State University Faculty Handbook to review the criteria, policies and procedures for Retention, Tenure, and Promotion of probationary/tenured faculty; Appendix K for the criteria and processes by which temporary faculty may apply for elevation in range; or Appendix M for the “Personnel Policies and Procedures for Coaches.”  The “Periodic Evaluation of Tenured Faculty” (post-tenure review) policy may be accessed on the Academic Personnel Services web site (www.humboldt.edu/aps/faculty/posttenure.html). 
 
Post-tenure review shall occur at intervals of no greater than five years.  The deadline for post-tenure review is established at the college level, but should be completed no later than April 1 of each year.  The deadline for periodic evaluation of temporary faculty is established at the department level, but should be completed no later than April 15 of each year.  The periodic evaluation schedule for coaching faculty is as established in Appendix M. 
 
Questions regarding the personnel action dates or the evaluation process may be directed to Academic Personnel Services, x5086.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
 
Robert A. Snyder
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
