The Job Architecture 治理委员会 has worked with HR to ensure specific roles are mapped consistently to job levels across campus, review educational requirements for various job levels, and align job postings with the framework. The Committee will continue to meet regularly to ensure the framework achieves its goal of creating a clearer and more consistent approach to categorizing staff jobs based on responsibilities and requirements, and provide staff and supervisors with more clarity on career tracks and opportunities.

学生和师资的新支持:
 
  • 课程评价: The University Registrar’s Office, in partnership with the College, the Booth School of Business, and IT Services, is launching a new course evaluation application this fall to replace an aging home-grown system. The new system allows for customization of evaluations and a robust reporting mechanism that will deliver timely and meaningful insights into quarterly curricular offerings. It integrates seamlessly with the Academic Information System (AIS) and the University’s Learning Management System and will allow the University to better manage a complex process m要么e efficiently.
 
  • 本科学位规划工具: My Planner, an academic planning and degree audit tool that is integrated with AIS, rolled out to all students in the College at the start of Autumn 2019. The tool allows students to map out multiple years of courses based on built-in curriculum requirements that use the past four catalog years and historical course scheduling data to predict whether a course is likely to be offered in a future quarter. Advisers will also be able to track students’ progress more efficiently and communicate with them through the application. Learn m要么e on 此FAQ页面.
