Promotions, Vacancies

When a vacancy is advertised, applications will be accepted from both current and prospective employees and will be advertised on campus and off campus. Employees and all other applicants proceed through the same application procedures. Employees are discouraged to apply for or be selected for a position that is in a lower salary range or grade than the employee's current position. When an employee agrees to position at a lower grade and salary, this is considered a Voluntary Demotions and may retain current salary upon approval from the divisional Vice President. If a decision is made by a Vice President that a lateral move (same job classification and grade) will be made to fill a vacancy in the same pay range, there will be no pay increase. Supervisors considering an internal candidate as a finalist should contact the candidate’s current supervisor prior to any interview for final selection.
