Resources for Chairs and Directors

The Dean of the Faculty's office provides a month-by-month guide to the academic year, long-term planning information and other resources for department chairs and center directors.

Department chairs and center directors take on a host of challenging administrative duties. To assist them, the Office of the Dean of the Faculty has assembled a month-by-month guide to important deadlines and actions, a guide to long-term academic planning and a collection of other relevant online resources.

Most of these resources apply to chairs and directors across the University, excluding the Warren Alpert Medical School.

The Dean of the Faculty's month-by-month guide helps department chairs and center directors manage deadlines, salary increases, sabbaticals and more.
The Dean of the Faculty’s long-term planning guide helps chairs and directors develop multi-year plans for curricula, leaves, advising and hiring.
The Institutional Research Office maintains google sites with data available to chairs and directors with information on climate, faculty lines, research funding, teaching loads and other useful information on your academic unit. For access to your site, email OIR at
