|Definition of Chair and Academic Program Director
A member of personnel class 210 who functions as the chief representative
and administrator of a department or an academic program and who reports
to an academic dean or to an appropriate administrative officer is designated
a chair or academic program director. Appointments as chair or academic
program director are separate from the academic appointment an individual
holds; alteration in an administrative contract does not affect the academic
contract held by that person. The "Handbook for Faculty" (Section
II.I.4) describes the position in additional detail.
Note #1: The term "chair" is used throughout these documents to mean "chair" and/or "academic program director".
