The University invites comments on a proposed UC San Diego Policy and Procedure Manual (PPM) Section 230-016, UC San Diego Procedures for Academic Senate Faculty Discipline.

 APM 016, the University Policy on Faculty Conduct and the Administration of Discipline, requires each Chancellor to establish procedures for the administration of discipline on the campus.  Consistent with the transparent administration of APM 016 and UC Academic Personnel Manual (APM) Section 015 – the Faculty Code of Conduct, Academic Personnel Services (APS) drafted and posted Interim UC San Diego Procedures for Academic Senate Faculty Discipline.

Academic Personnel Manual (UC-APM) & Presidential Policies Under Review or Open for Comment

Under Review-Open for Comment: Academic Personnel Manual (APM) Section 016,  University Policy on Faculty Conduct and the Administration of Discipline

The University invites comments on proposed revisions to APM - 016, University Policy on Faculty Conduct and the Administration of Discipline. 

The policy revisions respond to the need to revise APM - 016 to address the handling of simultaneous academic misconduct investigations and personnel actions and include:

  • Pause on Academic Personnel Review Actions: At the beginning of a formal investigation of alleged misconduct by a faculty member, if the Chancellor (or Chancellor’s designee) finds that any of the alleged misconduct is relevant to the assessment criteria for academic personnel review actions, the Chancellor (or Chancellor’s designee) may impose a no-fault pause on any current or future academic personnel action (e.g., for merit, promotion, or advancement) of that faculty member. Locations are responsible for developing implementation procedures that address at what stage in existing local procedures the pause occurs and that identify the offices that have responsibility for providing written confirmation of the pause to the respondent, giving a respondent periodic updates on the status of the investigation, and for notifying relevant administrators of the beginning and end of the pause.

 

  • Conclusion of the pause: The pause will end when the investigative and disciplinary processes are concluded. In the event of a disciplinary process following a formal investigation, the pause will end when a final decision is made whether to impose disciplinary sanctions. The academic personnel process may then proceed according to campus procedures.

 

  • Assistant Professors in Year 8: If the investigative and disciplinary processes are not concluded by the beginning of the faculty member’s eighth year of service at the rank of Assistant Professor (or a combination of equivalent titles), the Chancellor is authorized to recommend to the President that the appointment be extended beyond the eighth year, in accordance with Regents Bylaw 40.3(c).
