Recent Changes in UC Academic Personnel Policy

The following Academic Personnel Policy revisions have been issued.

Effective July 1, 2015

  • APM-210-1-d: Review and Appraisal Committees
    Issued by Provost and Executive Vice Presidennt Aimée Dorr. APM - 210-1-d, originally issued in 2005, has become a national model for universities to recognize and credit contributions to equal opportunity and diversity while evaluating faculty achievement for appointment, advancement, and promotion. New language clarifies the intent of the existing language and strengthens the principle that diversity functions as a component of excellence at the University of California.

    The issuance letter, the revised policy section, and appendix to the issuance letter may be found on the UCOP website here.

Effective May 1, 2015

Effective July 1, 2012

  • APM-035: Affirmative Action and Nondiscrimination in Employment
    Revisions reflect changes in California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), California Government Code Section 12900 et seq., which prohibits discrimination in employment. The California Legislature recently amended FEHA to clarify that discrimination on the basis of “gender” and “gender expression” are among the prohibited types of discrimination. Revisions also were made to insure that the definition of “service in the uniformed services” is consistent with both the federal Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Act of 1994 (USERRA) and California’s Military and Veterans Code Section 394.
  • APM-190, Appendix A-1: Policy on Reporting and Investigating Allegations of Suspected Improper Governmental Activities (Whistleblower Policy)
    The Whistleblower Policy quotes California Government Code Section 8547.2. The revisions reflect changes that the California Legislature recently made to that Code Section.

Effective February 1, 2012
