The primary purpose of Faculty
Personnel Services (FPS) is to facilitate personnel and employee
relation functions in a fair and consistent manner. FPS administers the
implementation of, and compliance with, our academic collective bargaining Agreements with faculty and graduate assistants and administer CMU academic policies and procedures. As part
of the Academic Division, FPS provides advice, support, training and
professional education to the academic community. Our core
constituency includes the president, provost, deans, department
chairpersons, their staffs, and most importantly, our faculty and
graduate assistants. All graduate assistant contracts are issued through Faculty Personnel Services, on behalf of the Dean of Graduate Studies.
The graduate assistant pay plan schedule for the current academic year is available under the Resource Center on the FPS website.
