Committee on Academic Personnel

The Committee on Academic Personnel (CAP) is charged with providing senate consultation on faculty personnel cases and making recommendations to deciding authorities (Chancellor, Campus Provost/Executive Vice Chancellor, and/or divisional Deans) on appointments, promotions, retentions, merit increases, and mid-career appraisals for Senate faculty, as well as similar actions for adjunct faculty and researchers.  CAP reviews academic personnel policies and addresses related issues, such as faculty salaries.  CAP meets weekly.
