Managing Employee Information in HRIS

It is a good practice to update academic rank, contract data and unclassified data (tenure and faculty senate status) when changes occur. Each year, for major administrative fiscal year reports, data must be verified and/or updated by October 1.  Process and Report Instructions for updating Academic Rank may be found under Managing Employee Information.

Questions may be referred to your Payroll & Employee Data liaison at (785) 532-6277.
