Job Descriptions Procedure - 63.06.03

College Policy Number/Title:

At Howard Community College, each staff position has a job description that summarizes the position’s duties, responsibilities, and minimum qualifications. The most current version of each position’s job description can be found on the human resources portal page.

Job descriptions for staff positions should be reviewed jointly by the supervisor and the employee who holds the position during the annual plan process, and may also be reviewed when mid-year and year-end appraisals are given. In addition, job descriptions should be reviewed and updated by the hiring supervisor when a position is vacated, prior to advertising the position. Necessary changes to the job description should be recorded on the latest approved version of the document using track changes. Edited job descriptions should be submitted for approval to the area vice president or designee, or the president for areas reporting to the president, and then to the office of human resources for evaluation of the contents and determination of the appropriate grade level for the position. If there is disagreement between the supervisor and the employee over the contents of the job description, the supervisor ultimately has the final authority over the content forwarded for approval to the area vice president, or the president for areas reporting to the president.

Each individual faculty position does not have its own job description, but rather has a general job description that describes the common duties and requirements for faculty positions and faculty leadership positions. The faculty job descriptions can also be found on the human resources portal page and should be reviewed for necessary changes periodically by the office of the vice president of academic affairs in consultation with the faculty constituency group.

Effective Date:  03/08/19
