Acting Chairpersons

Every chairperson needs to appoint someone to serve as acting chairperson when he or she is out of town and not easily reached or find himself or herself temporarily unable to perform their duties. In some cases, the DGS or associate chairpersons (T-TT), or a former chairperson can serve in this capacity. Notify your divisional Associate Dean of the choice before the beginning of the fall semester. In the rare case that a chairperson needs to be away for an extended period, arrangements will be made to compensate the acting chairperson. Please see the Dean of the College or your divisional Associate Dean to work out these arrangements in advance.
