Welcome to Academic Personnel Services

The mission of Academic Personnel Services is to facilitate the recruitment, advancement and retention of a world-class, diversified faculty and other academic personnel. We accomplish this by providing leadership, training, innovative technology, and guidance to administrators in implementing policies and procedures related to the academic personnel program. We are committed to fostering a high-quality work/life and learning environment to sustain the exceptional teaching, research, patient care, and service provided by UC San Diego academic appointees.

Under the leadership of the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Personnel, the various APS service units (listed at left) perform a wide range of functions for the Executive Vice Chancellor and the entire campus community.
