Approved Departmental Personnel Standards

Please contact Mark Carrier if your department is revising its DPS document.  Mark provides feedback on revisions before they go through the approval process.  Overview of UPS 210.002 Requirements and DPS Self-Audit may be useful. For information and suggestions on adding wording related to community-engaged teaching, research/creative, and service activities, the Center for Internships and Community Engagement hosts an extremely valuable guide. Please see   UPS 210.002PDF File Opens in new window  for requirements and  details on the process of revising DPS documents.

Copies of the most recently approved Departmental Personnel Standards are available below for download and reference.  This document will also be the best resource for answering questions about what makes a good portfolio for your department.  A copy of this document will need to be uploaded to section b. of every full-review RTP portfolio.  

Note that some colleges  also  may have college personnel standards, e.g., the College of the Arts, and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. Consult with the relevant Dean's office.
