Deans' Council Meeting

On September 12, 2019, at the Deans' Council Meeting, Senior Vice Provost Barbara Rodríguez announced a change to the hiring procedures to improve the efficiency of the faculty hiring process. Effectively immediately, main and branch campus faculty search committee coordinators are no longer required to upload the screening matrix to UNM Jobs. The screening matrix, an important component of the department’s faculty search documents, is to be retained within the department for 5 years. SVP Rodríguez will periodically request screening matrices, from search committee coordinators, to ensure consistent and fair screening practices.

Working Retiree Update

Effective July 1, 2019 NMERB revised guidance regarding certification of eligibility to return to work for all working retirees.
