Policy for Faculty Initiated Transfer of FTE (1997; Revised 2007, 2011)
A member of the College faculty may seek reassignment to another department or unit (i.e. Program, Center, or Institute with affiliated faculty) with a full or partial transfer of budgeted FTE to the new department or unit. The approval process requires written statements from the chairs or directors of all departments or units whose budgets are affected by the proposed transfer. The statements should address any changes in the tenure or promotion home of the faculty member. All requests and supporting statements should be submitted to the Dean by no later than the first week of the fall or spring semester prior to the effective date of the transfer. The Dean will consult with the College Policy Committee prior to making a decision. The Dean will then communicate his or her decision in writing to all parties identified above.
