The list of faculty who most recently received tenure or who have been promoted to full professor has been updated. We would like to apologize to these faculty members for this error and thank those who brought it to our attention. 

Welcome back!

It's the start of a new academic year and students, faculty, and staff are off and running. We are excited to announce that UP has launched a new website! The new site features redesigned navigation and combines the information from the previous Human Resources and Academic Personnel websites to better serve and support the campus and community. Let us know what you think!

We have also done some rearranging of our office in an effort to create a more welcoming environment. Feel free to stop by and see our new layout!

CSU SkillPort Challenge

Thank you for your support for the past three months! As a result, CSUMB has been ranked #1 out of the CSU campuses for our SkillPort usage! If we can continue this trend through December, we will not only win bragging rights, but also a free year of SkillPort for our campus ($5,000 value)! Take a moment to visit the SkillPort Challenge page for training suggestions or provide us with your suggestions to share with the campus!

New Additional Work & Special Consultant Forms

Our office has revised the existing forms and provided guidelines and documents to help accommodate the changing needs of the university and keep employees and managers in compliance with the CSU Additional Work policy. The changes affect both faculty and staff. Please take a moment to review the updated guidelines for additional work and special consultants. We highly recommend downloading new copies of these documents from our website for each use to ensure only the most up-to-date versions are being used.

Sustaining a Positive Work Environment

It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of the CSU Workplace Environment Resources Website. The Workplace Environment Resources Website addresses the issue of abusive conduct (or "bullying") and includes “best practices” from CSU campuses, other higher education institutions, and noted experts in the field.  The website offers resources such as articles, presentations, and links to other websites to help support CSU employees who may be experiencing these types of issues. The Workplace Environment Resources Website will also provide examples and inspiration as CSU campuses strive to address this important issue within their workplace environments.
