  • Questions/Concerns from AP Staff Members (if any) None.
  • Presentation – Linda Yuhas – AP Job Description module
    • AP job description module was developed in response to the Climate Study.   AP staff responses to the study showed they were concerned that job descriptions were not available for AP positions.
    • Emails are going out to invite AP staff to update their job description online.  Open positions in the last two years are already populated. Will have an approval process – supervisor, appointing officer, human resources and affirmative action – then to the GVSU intranet (HR secure – only available through with a GVSU login) – then market analysis (completed by Linda Yuhas).
    • Can change as needed.  Can change if position becomes open and needs are re-evaluated.
    • Not mandatory. May be required by appointing officer or supervisor.
    • Listed by title and position number.  Not listed by name.
    • Expectation is that EPDP job responsibilities and job description would be the same.  More general/broad description/not a list of responsibilities.
    • Not linked directly with the salary.
    • Should discuss required and preferred experience/education with supervisor.
    • Greater benefit is to the broader University community.  A way for internal candidates to find what is required for a position without having to have direct conversation with person currently in the role and their supervisor.
    • Roll out anticipated by the end of the semester.
  • Next meeting – (rescheduled) Monday, April 15th, 1-2:30, KC2215.  Guest Speaker: Jim Bachmeier.
