5.5.1: Promotions

While promotions are frequently accompanied by an immediate increase in compensation, in some cases an increase may be temporarily deferred until the employee demonstrates capacity to fulfill the added responsibilities and duties of the new position.

The University promotes employees from within whenever possible, giving preference to internal applicants when internal and external candidates are equally qualified for a given position. An employee’s indication of an interest in a promotion/transfer will in no way affect the employee’s current position.
