Board of Permanent Officers

Faculty at the rank of full professor who are appointed without limit of term, together with the President and Provost, ex officiis, and the Dean of the School of Medicine, constitute the School's Board of Permanent Officers. This is the governing board of the School, entrusted with matters of education policy and governance and responsible for recommendations to the President and Provost for appointments at the associate professor, professor, research scientist and senior research scientist ranks. The permanent officers may invite other faculty to attend meetings of the Board and vote on appointments and promotions to ranks below or equal to their own. By longstanding policy, the Board of Permanent Officers has offered such rights to all faculty who hold the ranks of associate professor with tenure and clinical professor. In all meetings action is taken by majority vote of those present and voting.
