P&S Council

Classification study is under way

by Anne Dolan

Focus groups to discuss improvements to the Professional and Scientific classification system are scheduled to meet by the end of next month. During the P&S Council meeting Oct. 2, Dorothy Sally, P&S classification manager who is overseeing the study, said work on the project has begun. Sally currently is identifying positions that will be represented in the focus groups. Individuals from those positions then will be selected randomly.

Last month, Carla Espinoza, director of Human Resource Services, announced plans for a 10- to 12-month study of the P&S classification system. She said the structure is fine, but lacks policies and procedures that help employees across the university use the system more consistently.

Following are highlights of the meeting.

The council's next meeting begins at 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6, in the Memorial Union Gold Room. An open forum begins at noon.
