The current logic for assigning Academic Staff members to a district was approved by the Academic Staff Assembly (ASA) in 2016-2017. This logic was designed to maintain affinity groups for district assignments and is based on two considerations: (1) the staff member’s Job Code and (2) the employee’s Division and Department. In addition to ensuring that districts are composed of staff with common affinities, these parameters are part of UW Madison’s Human Resource Systems (HRS) data, allowing district assignments to be automated. In order to maintain consistency in the size among districts, ASA policy calls for the number of districts to change relative to the number of Academic Staff on campus. The DRC will conduct a compliance review of district sizes and number of districts each year during the month prior to elections of ASA Representatives and Alternates.
