Administrator Plan Statements

Part 1.02 Definitions:

"Administrators" are those unclassified employees in positions which meet the “managerial" definition outlined in Minnesota Statute §43A.02, Subd. 28. Administrators are staff who create or formulate, influence, or manage policy or direct the college/university system. Administrators make high level operating decisions in the college/university system or delegate such decisions to others.

Administrators include the Chancellor, presidents, vice presidents/deans, vice chancellors, associate vice chancellors, directors in the Office of the Chancellor, associate/assistant vice presidents/deans, deans/directors (academic/instructional programs), associate/assistant deans/directors (academic/instructional programs) and other titles where the position has the same responsibilities.

Additionally, administrators may include employees who:

(a) report directly to the Chancellor, president, vice president, vice chancellor, associate vice chancellor or directors in the Office of the Chancellor and who meet the test for "managerial employee"; or

(b) meet the test for a "managerial employee," and are responsible for academic research, academic public service responsibilities including institutional relations, alumni and foundation activities; academic program administration or academic program outreach, including curriculum development and implementation, instruction, or direction of a program having direct contact with students about financial aids, admissions and registration, placement, campus student life and development, or related educational programs and services.

Part 1.03, Subd. 3:

(a) Employment At Will. Administrators serve at the pleasure of the Chancellor/president and no provision of this Plan shall be construed to alter the at-will nature of an administrator’s employment. 

Administrators in acting, interim and temporary appointments may be terminated without advance notice at any time, with or without cause.

Subd. 4:

The Chancellor/president shall define and redefine the duties of administrators under his/her supervision. The Chancellor/president may at any time reassign an administrator to another position within the college/university or Office of the Chancellor. Where a reassignment between a college/university and the Office of the Chancellor is concerned, the Chancellor and the president of the college/university shall consult with each other and the individual prior to such reassignment. Reassignment between colleges/universities must be approved by the presidents of the affected institutions and must be consistent with personnel policies and contractual provisions. Such reassignment does not constitute a vacancy.

Article 1.04 Evaluation, subd.2 states:

All other administrators shall be evaluated each fiscal year and a copy of the evaluation documentation shall be retained in the administrator's personnel file.
