1.5.E. Departmental Divisions and Sections and Division or Section Chiefs

A departmental division or section may be established by the Dean on recommendation of the department chair, who states the academic and administrative reasons and documents the personnel, fiscal, space and other requirements. Divisional or sectional status is reserved for academic activities sufficiently distinctive, extensive and significant to require administrative differentiation for optimum development and management.

The chief of a division or section is appointed by the department chair (with the Dean's concurrence), and serves at the will of the chair (likewise with the Dean's concurrence).
