    • 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).

    • 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.
