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.
