Comment sought on hiring policy

Vice President Julie Weaks Gutierrez and the Executive Cabinet have asked faculty and staff to carefully evaluate and comment on proposed changes to Policy 3210 “Staff Recruitment and Hiring.”

The policy will be streamlined and include an explanation of faculty and/or staff appointments using alternative appointment procedures.

One of the proposed changes to alternative appointment procedures includes changing the maximum duration for short duration appointments from three days to three months to allow departments to expedite summer hires. This is especially critical to some summer contract and grant programs, such as College of Education programs that hire APS teachers for summer projects.

Comments should be sent to Weaks Gutierrez’s office or via e-mail to ubppm@unm.edu by April 21.

Proposed drafts are available to UNM faculty and staff accessing the UNM web page through UNM computers. The URL is http://www.unm.edu/~ubppm.
