Step Plus Proposal
During the June 3, 2011 meeting, the Representative Assembly passed the following resolution: “The Representative Assembly wishes to form a task force to determine the feasibility of potential simplifications of the academic personnel process that will result in reducing the amount of staff and faculty time invested in that process. This Task Force will report back to this Assembly one year hence.” The following chronicles our efforts to take action and consult with committees and members.
