Policy:

  1. The term "deans" as used in this policy statement, refers to administrative officers of academic units of the university. Organizationally, deans report to and are appointed by the Provost. Initial appointments to deanships require the approval of the President. When a vacancy exists, the Provost will be responsible for initiating the search for a new dean. The Provost shall establish a representative advisory committee of faculty members, half of whom are selected by him after consultation with departmental chairmen, and half of whom are elected by the full-time faculty of the college, according to divisions of the college determined by the Provost. Students are appointed to the committee by the Provost. This committee shall determine criteria and assist the Provost in the search and evaluation process. Throughout the selection process, the college faculty and its department chairmen shall have the opportunity to discuss freely with the Provost all candidates for the position.

  2. The appointment of a dean will be continued on a year-to-year basis until terminated. The appointment may be terminated either by the dean, or by the Provost after consulting with the faculty.

  3. No one shall serve as a dean after the end of the fiscal year during which he/she attains the age for retirement from administrative duties.

  4. Assistant and associate deans are appointed by their deans in consultation with the faculty. Initial appointments and changes from assistant to associate status require the approval of the Provost. These are annual appointments and will be continued from year to year until terminated. The appointment may be terminated by either the appointee or by the dean.
