Requests for Personnel

Cañada College's Participatory Governance Manual delineates the process for requesting, prioritizing, and approving position requests.  All resource requests are made as part of the Program Review process and submitted in Nuventive along with all other data, narratives, and required forms.  To request new positions - as distinct from replacement hires - programs must complete the appropriate position proposal form along with the resource request for the position in Nuventive. 

Templates for the new classified position proposal form and the new faculty position proposal form can be found on the Program Review templates page.

The 2023-24 Program Review Timeline approved by the Instructional Planning Council and the Planning and Budgeting Council (PBC) in spring 2023, governs the due dates for the 2023-24 academic year cycle.  The College President will announce personnel decisions as soon as possible, but no later than January. 

As part of the process, programs requesting new positions must make a presentation to the Planning and  Budgeting Council.  This year, these presentations will be held in Room 13-333 and on Zoom on:

Schedule of Presentations

Wednesday, November 15, 2:10 - 4:30 p.m.

Location:  Building 13, Room 334 or via this Zoom Link
