Note: Service in a compensated position (e.g., dean, associate dean, department chair) does not constitute outstanding service in Step Plus. Outstanding accomplishments in the administrative position are recognized at the time of review in that position. Service beyond that expected of the administrative position may warrant additional half-step advancement.
