VII. Administration and the Faculty
 
VII.A. The Board of Trustees. Ultimate authority in and responsibility for Marietta College reside in the Board of Trustees.
 
VII.B. The President. Ultimately, all members of the College report to the president. The president functions through the dean of the faculty and other administrative officers.
 
VII.C. Delegation of Administrative Responsibility. In the absence of the president, the president's duties and responsibilities will be carried on by the dean of the faculty. In the absence or incapacity of both the president and the dean of the faculty, their duties and responsibilities will be carried on by the members of the administrative cabinet.

Under extraordinary circumstances, the Board of Trustees may exercise their authority to take control over administrative operations.

 
VII.D. Appointment of Administrators. Administrative officers are appointed for annual terms and do not qualify for tenure. However, if a teaching member who already holds tenure at the College accepts an administrative appointment, tenure as a faculty member is not lost (see Handbook Section III.K.2.). Such an appointee may, however, lose standing as a voting member of the faculty if the position assumed is not among those listed in the Constitution Section I. The administrative organization is depicted in an organizational chart found in Handbook Appendix 4.
