Academic Specialist Manual

3.4 Procedure for Establishing Positions

All academic specialist positions must be established using the same position request and review procedures required for all academic personnel system positions (see Academic Hiring Manual). Additionally, a Specialist Position Description form must be completed.

To be approved, academic specialist positions must include duties and responsibilities which are not covered by or adequately provided for in current support staff classifications. The Office of the Provost may consult with the Office of Human Resources as a part of the review procedure for the establishment of probationary, continuing or fixed term positions within the Academic Specialist Appointment System.
