Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to encourage and support the professional development and enhancement of non-bargaining classified employees.

Policy

Supervisors are expected to support and encourage the career development and performance effectiveness of employees. Enhancing job-related knowledge, skills and abilities are vital to the individual's and the university's continued success.

Department Heads, Supervisors and individual employees may contact University Human Resources for assistance.

Procedure

Typically, every effort should be made by the supervisor to allow an employee up to 10% release time from the job, for job-related development, and degree pursuit/classes at the university. Requests may vary.

The requests should exclude department retreats, mandatory training, and development requirements, e.g., re-certification, required CEU's.

The request by the employee should be in writing to the supervisor and should include such data as the event, the date, time and rationale for attendance. Advance notice is in order to allow the supervisor to make appropriate accommodations.

If the supervisor is unable to grant accommodations, then the employee may appeal to the Department Head and upward to the Planning Unit Head.
