The Academic Personnel Manual (APM)

The APM includes policies and procedures pertaining to the employment relationship between an academic appointee and the University of California. The APM is issued by the Office of the President and applies to all campuses and laboratories. Academic appointees subject to policies and procedures within the APM include, but are not limited to, faculty such as professorial rank faculty, lecturers and clinical faculty; academic research professionals such as professional researchers and specialists; academic service professionals such as librarians and cooperative extension specialists and advisors; and graduate student employees such as research and teaching assistants. The APM applies only to the extent provided for in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for academic appointees covered by collective bargaining.

Policy specific to Academic Personnel: PPM 230

The Policy & Procedure Manual (PPM), along with the Academic and Staff Personnel Manuals, serves as the primary reference guide for campus operating policies and procedures which apply to academic, administrative, research, and service units. PPM 230 provides additional academic personnel policies that are specific to UC San Diego (including all units under its jurisdiction). PPM 230 supplements the policies and procedures set forth in the APM, and must always be applied in conjunction with that manual.

The PPM policies connect the campuses mission to the everyday actions of its community, clarify the institutions expectations of its individual members, mitigate institutional risk, enhance efficiency, and support the university’s compliance with laws and regulations.
