F. Department Chair Nomination Process

Department Chairs are chosen through a process by which each member of the department is consulted regarding the faculty member’s suitability to serve as Department Chair. Candidates are rated as:

  • desirable,
  • acceptable, or
  • not acceptable to serve as Department Chairs.

The names of all faculty members and the degree to which there is support for them to chair the department are forwarded to the Dean, who makes a recommendation for appointment to the Provost. (Please refer to Chapter I, Section 14 of the University Statutes).

Chairs are normally appointed for a term of three years.
