Re:  Delegation of Authority for Academic Personnel Actions to the Vice Provost–Academic Affairs: Decanal Recommendations upon Dean Recusal

Dear Vice Provost Lee:

Effective immediately, I hereby delegate to the Vice Provost–Academic Affairs the authority to provide the decanal recommendation on academic personnel actions in which the Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor or Chancellor is the deciding officer and the cognizant dean is the candidate or otherwise recuses due to conflict of interest.

This delegation does not extend to decanal authority actions. The Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor shall remain the deciding officer for decanal authority actions in which the dean recuses.

Exceptions to the Academic Personnel Manual (APM) and the Campus Academic Personnel Manual (CAPM) are not delegated by this memorandum and must be approved as set forth in policy.

This authority may not be further delegated without express approval from the Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor.

If you have any questions, please contact the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Personnel Pamela Peterson at or 459-5254.
