Office of Academic Personnel


The Academic Personnel Office at CSU, Chico values faculty as the source of inspiration and knowledge that characterizes the excellent learning environment of our institution. Our Office is committed to supporting faculty from the moment of engagement to the final farewell. We actively pursue cooperative resolution of faculty personnel issues.

Our office interprets and applies the Collective Bargaining Agreements for Unit 3 Faculty and Unit 11 Academic Student Employees, and handles grievances filed pursuant to those agreements. We coordinate and manage recruitment, development, and advancement for faculty. We actively participate in training sessions and new faculty orientation programs. Our office provides support and resources to faculty as they pursue their missions of research, teaching, and career advancement while maintaining a positive work-life balance.

The office is a branch of Academic Affairs and is administered by the Associate Vice President for Academic Personnel. You can learn more about our team on the following pages:
