2016-17 CALL and Calendar for Academic Personnel Actions

April 29, 2016

By Pamela G. Peterson, Associate Vice Chancellor, Academic Personnel 


Dear Colleagues: 

Re: 2016-17 CALL and Calendar for Academic Personnel Actions 

The 2016-17 CALL, listing senate faculty and continuing lecturers scheduled for review next year, may now be accessed in DivData by department and divisional staff. The campus deadlines for 2016-17 reviews have also been established by the Campus Provost/Executive Vice Chancellor and appear on the Calendar for Academic Personnel Actions

To assist you with your responsibilities in the academic personnel review process, information regarding eligibility for advancement actions for senate faculty and continuing lecturers has been excerpted from academic personnel policy in the Summary of Review Eligibility


  • The July 1 to June 30 review year for senate faculty, announced last June, is effective with this review cycle. Review period dates will initially commence with the end of each candidate’s last review period and continue through June 30, 2016.  
  • Changes to the biobibliography guidelines for 2016-17 resulting from the Biobib Project go into effect on May 1, 2016, along with the first group in a series of enhancements planned for the campus DivData Biobibnet system. A Summary of Changes is posted on the website. 

It is the responsibility of department and program chairs to make certain that there is an annual review of the status and performance of each faculty member in their department. This includes examining cases of faculty members who are not included on the CALL but may be eligible for review, including faculty at the indefinite steps. Cases of unsatisfactory performance and of less than desirable excellence should be addressed. In all cases, guidance, feedback, and mentoring should be provided as needed. This is also an opportune time for chairs to meet with assistant professors to review research plans, monitor service commitments, and review the variety and level of teaching assignments.

If you have any questions about the CALL or the Calendar for Academic Personnel Actions, please contact your Divisional Academic Personnel Coordinator or the Academic Personnel Office.
