UWM Category A Academic Staff Title & Compensation (ASTAC) Plan

For several years, primarily between 1995 and 1998, Human Resources (HR) staff and the members of the Category A Advisory Panel met to discuss updating certain provisions of this document. The official title of the document is:

Given the length of the title, we commonly refer to this administrative document as the "Category A ASTAC Plan." The document is designed to ensure that UWM complies with UW System expectations as primarily derived from the "UWS Unclassified Personnel Guidelines." In an effort to bring closure to the updating which now spans six years, the Academic Staff Committee, with input from Academic Staff on campus, reviewed and supported the revised document. The Provost approved the revisions on 13 March 2001; the revised document is now fully implemented.
