Provost’s Guidelines on the Duties and Responsibilities of Chairs and Directors
The Provost has provided a more detailed list of the duties and responsibilities of chairs of departments and directors of schools. This list appears below. As always, deans will interpret these duties. Therefore, department chairs should check with their deans for additional information. Links to tools that may help with implementing these duties appear throughout the document. If the link takes you to the page for the Departmental Chairs and Directors Training Workshops, please click on the appropriate workshop for a link to the appropriate handouts.
