OPAA Signing Authority

Friday, March 2, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

We realize that the Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs has undergone a great deal of change in the last six months, and that may have left some of you unclear regarding who in our office you should refer to for questions and support.

Currently, the following individuals have signing authority/electronic approval for personnel matters related to each group of faculty listed below:

Tenure Track Faculty: Interim Vice Provost Ellen Herman (following the hire of a permanent Vice Provost, this will sit with that position)

Career or Pro Tem Instructional Faculty: Associate Vice Provost Sierra Dawson

Career or Pro Tem Research Faculty: Senior Associate Vice President Cassandra Moseley

Courtesy Faculty: Senior Associate Vice President Cassandra Moseley

In related matters, we are actively streamlining the process for approvals relating to the above positions, particularly Career or Pro Tem instructional faculty (NTTFs). We will communicate these changes as soon as they are finalized. Any changes would not take effect until July 1, 2018, the start of the new fiscal and academic year.

Best regards,

Jayanth Banavar
Provost and Senior Vice President

Scott Pratt
Executive Vice Provost
