6.3.D. Role of the Department Chair
The department chair is responsible for compliance with School guidelines regarding faculty appointments, reappointments and promotions. He or she is to ensure that those conducting Adjunct Clinical Faculty evaluations are fully informed about these guidelines in order to avoid delays and other problems due to deficiencies in procedure and documentation.
The ultimate decision on whether to initiate consideration for appointment or reappointment or promotion, and thereafter whether to forward an appointment, reappointment or promotion to the Vice Dean (or a designate) with a positive or negative recommendation, is made by the department chair in his or her judgment and discretion.
