Note: For the specific purposes of this document and its associated procedures, “divisional dean” also refers to the John A. Paulson Dean of SEAS, and “department chairs” to SEAS area deans. Although SEAS faculty members follow the same policies, some procedures may vary. Therefore, members of SEAS should also consult SEAS-specific documents.

Note: All procedural questions regarding faculty hiring, reviews, promotions, and leaves should be directed to the appropriate assistant dean, and the assistant dean should receive a copy of all documentation regarding these procedures. For more detailed listings on whom to contact, please see the “Additional Contact Information” table in Chapter 1.
