Revision and Uniformity of Policy 1310: Management Personnel Plan (MPP) Appointments

This project examined Cal Poly Pomona’s policy for hiring administrators levels III and IV, Policy 1310 Management Personnel Plan (MPP), for clarity and inconsistencies. University policies are a system of principles that guide decisions and achieve rational results for the good of the university. A well-written policy should align with the university mission and goals. Policies are guidelines created to provide a wide understanding of processes. They must be goal and process oriented, as well as objective, concrete, and specific to the needs of the university. Policy 1310 is a guide for the search and appointment of MPP positions and uses a process of shared governance for making permanent appointments of administrators.
