Academic Federation Step Plus

The following Academic Federation title series have transitioned to the Step Plus Merit and Promotion system:

  • Adjunct Professor
  • Academic Administrator
  • Academic Coordinator
  • Agronomist/in the AES
  • Assistant/Associate University Librarians and Law Librarians
  • Continuing Educators
  • Health Sciences Clinical Professor
  • Professional Researcher
  • Project Scientist
  • Specialist
  • Specialist in Cooperative Extension
  • University Extension Teachers

With Step Plus, every merit and promotion action will be evaluated for a 1.0 step, 1.5 step, 2.0 step increase, or more. Achievement that is beyond expectations will be recognized incrementally with the option of a 1.5 step or more. Step Plus is not a change in: the standards of evaluation, the procedure of merit review, or the funding for merit increases.
