The Dean for the college/division, Shane Burgess, and Jeff Ratje's office, CALS Business Services, provided guidance and further information regarding UCAP, the University initiative to standardize titles and consolidate the employment categories of Classified Staff and Appointed Professionals into one. Read the memo and the response from Shane.
Jeffrey, thank you for sending this to everyone.
Everyone, I want to follow up on Jeffrey’s email and reiterate that we are to map the position. We are not to map the person currently in the position. You should map the position based on what you expect in terms of outputs and outcomes, as well as the accountability, authority and responsibility you expect from any incumbent in the position. If your current incumbent is meeting these expectations, that is great and you should let them know; if not, then you should let them know. But regardless whether or not the incumbent is meeting your expectations or not isn’t relevant to the mapping process.
