Academic Senate Forum

Step Plus at UC Davis: Streamlining the Academic Personnel Process

The Academic Senate discussion of streamlining the academic personnel process was initiated at the June 3, 2011, Representative Assembly Meeting. In response, the Special Committee on Streamlining the Academic Personnel Process (STAPP) presented its report during the June 8, 2012, Representative Assembly Meeting. The Academic Senate commented on the STAPP report on January 18, 2013, and the Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs responded by putting together the Academic Personnel Streamlining Implementation Workgroup (APSIW). The revised APSIW report, available here, and the Divisional response to the APSIW report, available here, provide the most recent proposal description and discussion overview.

It is important to remember Step Plus is still a proposal and we need your feedback to guide discussion and further refinement. The Academic Senate has opened this web forum in an effort to ensure all Academic Senate members have an opportunity to comment on the Step Plus proposal.
