The previously announced Classification and Compensation (C&C) project formally began on January 6, 2014.  Dr. James Fox, managing director of Fox Lawson & Associates, presented a series of employee meetings providing a detailed overview of the project and timelines as well as an explanation of employee involvement.  Although inclement weather prevented Dr. Fox from attending the faculty institute as planned, sessions were held the following day in the Bradford Hall auditorium, where a project overview and timelines were discussed.  Additional informational information sessions are being planned, and details are forthcoming.

In his presentation, Dr. Fox delivered a detailed explanation of how non-faculty employees will complete a key document in the project: the Position Description Questionnaire (PDQ).  It is expected that every non-faculty employee will complete a PDQ, which will be reviewed by at least two levels of supervision.  In some limited cases in which multiple employees perform the exact same duties, a group PDQ may be completed.  Questions, if any, may be directed to Gary Meiseles, Director of Human Resources, at 597-6438 or
