Campus-Only Recruitment - Manager Process

About the Program
To support the career progress of qualified internal candidates, the campus-only recruitment process may be utilized as a competitive process to fill career vacancies.

Only positions covered by Personnel Policies for Staff Members (PPSM), including MSP positions, are eligible for this campus-only recruitment program. Positions covered by a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) are not eligible for this program.

How it Works
