Texas Woman's University Staff Handbook
Staff Employment Policies & Practices: Promotions

A promotion is the change of an employee from a position of one title to a position of another title assigned to a higher pay grade.

All promotions to positions in the Classified and the Professional and Administrative Personnel Groups are on the basis of qualifications and suitability without regard to race, age, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, national or ethical origin, veteran status, or against qualified individuals with disabilities and in keeping with the laws of the State of Texas. It is the policy of the University to fill a job vacancy with the best-suited candidate either by promoting or transferring an employee or by hiring from outside the University.

An administrator may promote a qualified employee to a vacant position within his/her area of responsibility at any time if the qualified employee possesses the skills and competences for the vacant position. Otherwise job posting requirements would apply. Whenever possible, such change in work assignment is made with due consideration of the employee's preference.

Approval of promotions made in accordance with University policies and procedures is assigned to the Senior Associate Vice President of Human Resources for review.
