Policy to Advise Dean of the Faculty on New Faculty
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
CPAC and Faculty Council serve an advisory role on
