Units need to plan for the required EC approvals by referring to the annual calendar of deadlines and meeting dates for the Executive Committee.

Materials submitted to Mandy Harrison (; 615.0659) by Tuesday noon are place on the next available EC agenda at least two weeks out. Please see links below for information on the specific materials required for the various requests.

Interim Approval

Interim Approval While the expectation is that units will plan submission of personnel requests in accordance with the EC schedule, the College recognizes that there are instances when an exception may be necessary due to a hiatus in the EC meetings. The College will allow interim approval by the Divisional Associate Dean for three specific breaks: holiday break (Dec.) winter break (Feb/Mar) and summer break (mid-May-Aug.)

Units requesting interim approval on a personnel action must have submitted a complete packet of materials to Divisional Affairs before the College will consider the request. All personnel actions given interim approval are placed on the next available EC agenda. Interim approval is limited to the following personnel requests:

  • Junior tenure-track hire requests with approved positions and in active competition with other institutions
  • Lecturer III hire requests with approved positions and an imminent start date
  • Sabbatical and Non-Sabbatical Leaves Summer Break Only
  • Collegiate and Endowed Professorship renewals
  • Appointment requests for Endowed Visiting titles
  • Courtesy Appointments – new and renewals
