Faculty Council
Policies and Practices

Policy to Advise Dean of the Faculty on New Faculty Positions

  1. All departments will submit new faculty position requests and proposals to the Dean of the Faculty. The Dean of the Faculty then provides a list of requests to Faculty Council for their consideration.


  2. At the Dean of the Faculty’s discretion, input may be sought from the College Planning Advisory Council (CPAC), the Curriculum Committee and any other pertinent committee.


  3. The Dean of the Faculty evaluates and prioritizes the requests. The Dean of the Faculty then selects and presents to Faculty Council a subset of request proposals that, in the Dean of the Faculty’s opinion, represent the most worthy group. The Dean of the Faculty also provides Faculty Council with a brief rationale that describes the criteria used for selecting the final set of requests.


  4. Faculty Council then considers the Dean of the Faculty’s final set of requests. At this time, Faculty Council may accept the Dean of the Faculty’s choices, or ask the Dean of the Faculty to reconsider the selection. When asking the Dean of the Faculty to reconsider the choices, Council will provide the Dean of the Faculty with a rationale for the request. If Faculty Council concurs with the Dean of the Faculty’s final set of requests then they evaluate each proposal and prioritize the set of requests. Faculty Council then makes a recommendation advising the Dean of the Faculty on which position warrants being filled.

Policy to Advise on New Administrative Positions


  1. It is the role of CPAC to advise the President and appropriate administrative officer on new administrative positions, since all of the colleges constituencies are represented, including faculty.


  2. Should CPAC’s composition or role be significantly altered, the Faculty Council will assume the responsibility of making faculty input to decisions about new administrative positions.


  3. In this event, the President or appropriate administrative officer will make a presentation to Council on the rationale for creating the recommended new administrative position.


  4. Faculty Council will consider and evaluate this rationale. Council may concur with the new position, or recommend that the President reconsider it. In the latter case, Council will provide their own rationale as to why the decision needs to be reconsidered.
