A review for the recruitment of a faculty member from another UC campus cannot proceed at the campus level until the other Chancellor (or Chancellor’s designee) of the campus from which the faculty member is being recruited has been officially informed.
The Chancellor of the recruiting campus will notify the other Chancellor of the intention to make an offer at the earliest possible opportunity. The Chancellor of the recruiting campus will provide information about the details of the offer in writing as soon as such information is available.
The information provided to the Chancellor must include any and all recruiting inducements, financial or otherwise and regardless of fund source, including the proposed salary, stipends or summer ninths, appointment to Endowed Chairs, teaching responsibilities and other recruitment incentives.
Presidential approval must be sought if the package of start-up costs and other inducements (excluding housing assistance) exceeds $500,000 for faculty in the laboratory sciences, and $250,000 for other faculty.
The package shall include all
expenditures such as laboratory
renovations, research equipment, and summer salary for a faculty member.
The recruiting campus may offer a salary of no more than one step, or the equivalent of one step, above the faculty member’s current salary. If the faculty member’s current salary is an Off-Scale Salary, the recruiting campus may offer the next higher step along with the same percentage increment.
An offer which includes a promotion is permitted if the salary conforms with the requirements set forth in these guidelines.
If a stipend is offered in addition to salary, it must be offered for bona fide administrative duties.
In response to the offer, the home campus may counter offer a salary equivalent to that of the recruiting campus.
If, at any time during recruitment, the home campus is reviewing the faculty member for a salary increase to become effective at a later date, the recruiting campus may not offer more than one step above the current salary until the review is complete.
If the home campus review results in a salary increase, the recruiting campus may offer a salary equivalent to the increased salary, even if the increase is more than one step above the salary at the time of the initial recruitment effort.
If the faculty member being recruited by another UC campus also is being recruited by an outside institution, then either the home and/or the recruiting UC campus may make a counter offer higher than that described above in order to compete with the outside offer.
Formal Offer of Appointment
Ten working days before making the formal written offer of appointment to the intended candidate, the Chancellor of the hiring campus shall indicate such intention to the Chancellor of the campus from which the appointee will be transferring. APM 510-80(c)
No offer of appointment which entails intercampus transfer of a continuing appointee shall be made after April 1st for service during the immediately following fiscal year, unless a later date is mutually agreed to by the Chancellors involved.
