To declare PMU guidelines with regards to Promotion and ensure uniform interpretation and application of this policy.


A promotion is considered to be a move to a position with a higher salary range. Upon promotion the Employee's salary is generally increased. A promotion for faculty would result from a review of their academic record as per the policy and procedure. A promotion for staff may result from successfully applying for a higher level of position responsibility that has been advertised by PMU. A promotion can also result where the Employee is placed in a higher level of responsibility without advertising the position and conducting a competition.

Salary Determination

Employees who have been promoted will receive a promotional salary increase. Normally when promoted, the Employee will be placed on the next highest step on the salary gird where in all cases the Employee must receive a minimum of a one (1) step increase. However, where the change in level of responsibility is significantly more than a greater increase in salary may be granted.
