University of Illinois at Chicago
Period of Project: July 1, 2014 – June 30, 2018
The purpose of this project is to implement a flexible employment process where applicants are recruited and selected in a similar fashion as a Civil Service status contract appointment, except that these positions are designated and assigned by funding source. This funding source may include, but is not limited to, federal or state grants, trusts, foundation, or corporate sources. The goal of the project is to allow the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) to employ qualified candidates in an expeditious manner without the possible consequence that an end in funding could cause a bumping implication and affect an entire campus.
