AUM Performance Review Cycle
(June 1, 2020- May 31, 2021)
Staff performance evaluations are an important part of employment at AUM. The process is not just about completing a form, it’s about managers and employees making the most of an opportunity to engage in high quality discussions about performance, development, and goals.

Although performance evaluations are encouraged to be more than just a once-a-year process, Human Resources must ensure that staff performance evaluations are completed annually. Below are a few dates to keep in mind.

May 31, 2021 Optional Self- Reviews Due (Performance Planning Self-Evaluation)
June 18, 2021 Performance Reviews Due (

Any questions related to the performance management process can be addressed to Tonya Dupree at [email protected]
Statement of Economic Interests
A Statement of Economic Interests shall be completed and filed with the Commission no later than April 30 of each year for the preceding calendar year.

Policy/Benefit Highlights

What is FMLA? Who do I contact concerning FMLA?

Basic Leave Entitlement

FMLA requires employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave to Eligible Employees for the following reasons:

  • For incapacity due to pregnancy, prenatal medical care, or childbirth;
  • To care for the employee's child after birth, or placement for adoption or foster care;
  • To care for the employee's spouse, child (son or daughter), or parent, who has a Serious Health Condition; or
  • For a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the employee's job.

Military Family Leave Entitlement

Eligible employees with a spouse, son, daughter, or parent on active duty or call for active duty status in the National Guard or Reserves in support of a contingency operation may use their 12-week leave entitlement to address certain qualifying exigencies. Qualifying exigencies may include attending certain military events, arranging for alternative childcare, addressing certain financial and legal arrangements, attending certain counseling sessions, and attending post-deployment reintegration briefings.
FMLA also includes a special leave entitlement that permits eligible employees to take up to 26 weeks of leave to care for a covered service member or covered veteran during a single 12-month period. FMLA Policy

The Healthy Tigers Wellness Initiative is a healthcare benefit for employees who subscribe to the Auburn University Health insurance plan. Participating in annual health and wellness screenings can result in a $25.00 per month (plus an additional $25.00 if a spouse participates) credit on health insurance premiums. As long as you participate in a clinic once per calendar year, you will continue to receive the discount. It is not on a rolling year – just once per year. For example, an employee could participate in January 2020 and as long as they participate anytime in 2021 by December, they will get the discount.
Look for clinics to be scheduled at AUM soon!
