IMPORTANT: The deadline to submit your Fall 2019 MPR is September 13, 2019.
Dear Full-time Faculty:
In accordance with New York State law as well as long-standing University policy, all full-time faculty members (including faculty who are in substitute positions) are required to file a Multiple Position Report (MPR) for every semester. The MPR requires faculty to disclose information related to the performance of any duties beyond those of a full-time faculty member. (NOTE: the MPR is not related to the New York State Ethics Commission requirement that faculty earning in excess of $97,448 file an Annual Statement of Financial Disclosure.) Activity beyond your regular full-time appointment (whether within CUNY or outside of CUNY) that is governed by the University’s Multiple Position Policy may be undertaken only upon prior approval of your Department Chairperson and Personnel and Budget (P&B) Committee. You are responsible for reporting any such activity. Further, any employment that exceeds the regulations of the Multiple Position Policy will need to be brought to the attention of the Department Chair who should thus consult with me (the Labor Designee) for review.
To help you understand and comply with the Multiple Position mandate, I have attached to this email a copy of the CUNY Statement of Policy on Multiple Positions. I have also attached the CUNY Multiple Position Report Form that you must complete. Please remember that faculty members who fail to file this report, or who engage in willful false reporting of information, are subject to University penalties.
The University recognizes the protections afforded by the First Amendment. Hence, although the MPR requires full disclosure of all compensated activities beyond your regular full-time assignment (along with any significant uncompensated commitments outside of CUNY), you are not required to report incidental uncompensated activities related to your membership in academic, political, religious, social, cultural, or charitable organizations, as long as these activities do not constitute a substantial commitment of your time.
Procedure to comply with CUNY’s Multiple Position Policy:
- Please use the attached CUNY Multiple Position Report Form (NOTE: This form is the updated version; please discontinue the use of previous versions). All full-time faculty members must complete and submit this MPR form for the Fall 2019 semester by September 13, 2019. Faculty members without additional duties are required to complete only Part A on page one of the MPR form. Faculty members who perform additional duties in either of the following instances must complete Part B on pages one and two of the MPR form:
*Outside of Baruch College, but within the CUNY system, or *Outside the CUNY system.
- Once you have completed your MPR form, you should forward it to your Department Chair. If you are reporting additional duties, the Department Chair and the Department P&B Committee will review and recommend appropriate action on page three of the MPR form.
- After the P&B reviews all of the department MPR forms, the Chair (or the Chair’s designee) will then forward all department MPRs to the Dean’s Office for review and appropriate action.
- The Dean’s Office will forward properly completed MPRs to the Office of Legal Counsel and Labor Designee for final review. The Labor Designee will notify the Dean’s Office of improperly completed MPRs and will return them to the Department Chairs and/or Deans for completion.
If you have any further questions or concerns regarding the Multiple Position Policy and/or form, you may contact me at email@example.com or 646-312-3320.
