Monday, March 20, 2023 - 13:16

For the rest of FY23, approvals for unbudgeted positions and for any positions* paying $75,000 per year or more must be approved by OHR or the Provost's Office. Unit HR shall submit an exception request if their units need:

  • New staff and/or union faculty positions that are not in the approved budget, and/or
  • Any new or replacement positions* that pay more than $75,000/year

OHR will review requests and respond accordingly.
Deans shall discuss the need for tenured, tenure-track faculty (TTTF) positions outside of the approved budget with the Provost directly.

We’ve created an easy-to-use Google Form to submit such position approval requests
