The Professional and Scientific Council was established in 1978 for the purpose of studying, formulating, and recommending to administrative officers of UNI policies of interest to Professional and Scientific employees. The Council, consisting of representatives elected by division members, meets monthly during University office hours. Meetings are open to the public unless voted into executive session.

In January 2013, Cabinet approved an updated version of the P&S Policies and Procedures that had changes that did not reflect what was approved by the P&S Council in October 2012. The link below is a version includes the footnotes that were removed in the Cabinet approved version as well as highlights the other changes that were made after the P&S Council approval. P&S Council and P&S Policies and Procedures Committee is currently working with members of Cabinet to formalize the approval process for P&S Policies and Procedures changes.

For fiscal year 2014, the salary increases recommended by former President Allen are for salary increases of 1% distributed across-the-board only to P&S employees that have been rated satisfactory or above on their performance review, and another 1% distributed based on meritorious performance.

P&S Staff,
HR recently made an announcement that open enrollment has begun for Health, Dental, and Voluntary Life insurance. You have until May 29th to make changes to your plan(s). Changes, including the new rates, take effect on August 1st, but are deducted from your July 31st paycheck.

UNI P&S staff are invited to attend one of two open forums to learn about and provide feedback regarding proposed P&S Policies and Procedures approval processes. The first such opportunity is Wednesday, May 1, from 11 a.m.–12 p.m., ITTC 136. The second opportunity is Friday, May 3, from 12–1 p.m., ITTC 136.

Your voice is an important part of this process. We hope to see you at one of these two sessions.
