As part of the Virginia Higher Education Restructuring Act, at its August 25 meeting the Board of Visitors approved resolutions that define policy changes for university staff. The new policies for university staff (staff employees hired on or after July 1, 2006) are effective October 1, 2008 and will be implemented in January, 2009. The resolution is highlighted by a new performance management system that will be used for both university and classified staff – only university staff members will participate in our new merit pay program.
In addition to the resolution regarding university staff, the Board approved a resolution to redefine administrative and professional positions and to allow eligible staff in pay bands 5-7 to convert to administrative and professional (A/P) status. For additional information please see the detailed version of this announcement.
