Graduate Assistant appointments in CSE

When creating an appointment, the employing department initiates and owns the appointment.  For graduate assistant appointments shared between units, separate appointments should be created if there are different supervisors, job codes, or pay rates.  When all characteristics of an appointment are the same but the funding sources cross units, the graduate assistant's supervisor's home department initiates and owns the appointment, and the pay is divided by split distributions, unless all units funding the appointment agree that another arrangement is more appropriate.  All subsequent changes to the appointment, including distribution changes, must route through the department that owns the appointment.
