Deans and Chairs
2.6.2 Deans and Chairs
Department chairs have a general responsibility for promoting the scholarly and research activities of their departments as well as fostering sound stewardship of funds. They review applications for research projects for suitability, assuring that the personnel, fiscal, and space demands of all such projects are in the best interest of both their department and the University as a whole. School deans have the same responsibility for their schools.
