Personnel Policies

Non-represented Employees. There is one set of personnel policies - Personnel Policies for Staff Members (PPSM) - for non-represented career staff employees in the following groups:

  • Management/Senior Professionals (MSP). This group is composed of managers and senior professionals who provide leadership and professional expertise at the highest levels to major University units, programs, or fields of work, and are accountable for their areas of responsibility. Positions at this level are responsible for identifying objectives, formulating strategy, directing programs, managing resources, and functioning effectively with a high degree of autonomy.
  • Professional and Support Staff (PSS). This group is composed of professional and support staff who provide administrative, professional, technical, and operational support through independent judgment, analytical skill, and professional or technical expertise, or are responsible for providing clerical, administrative, technical, service, and maintenance support for University departments, programs, and fields of work.

All non-represented positions will continue to be governed by PPSM. Positions will be assigned to either the MSP program or the PSS program based upon the body of work and the level of the job.
