Arcade on the Quad

The Faculty Affairs division of the Provost's Office is responsible for implementation of University policy regarding appointments and promotions, salary setting, leaves, endowed chair appointments, appeals, and other matters of an academic nature.

This office works with School Deans' offices, the Advisory Board, and the Provost to ensure compliance with Board of Trustees and Academic Council policies and to facilitate effective communication on issues related to the Professoriate, Academic Staff and Other Teaching Staff.

The office also provides publications, such as the Faculty Handbook, maintains a Faculty database, and works with other University offices and committees to develop new policies.
