6.3.G. Review by the Office of Academic Affairs
The appointment, reappointment or promotion file is submitted by the department chair to the Office of Academic Affairs for review by the Vice Dean (or a designate). The Vice Dean (or a designate) may, in his or her judgment, make a negative recommendation on the file or take such other action as deemed appropriate, including to request additional information or remand the action to the department.
After having received such review by the Office of Academic Affairs and after any suggested revisions have been incorporated or other issues have been resolved, the file is then submitted to the Office of Academic Affairs for distribution to the School of Medicine Adjunct Clinical Faculty Appointments and Promotions Committee. The Committee considers all actions with the exception of Adjunct Clinical Instructor appointments and reappointments at all ranks, which are reviewed for approval by the Vice Dean (or a designate).
