Advisory Committee on Academic Staffing

Advisory Committee on Academic Staffing

 

The functions of ACAS include the following:

  • Advise the Provost on academic staffing. The Committee will determine its own range of action, but among the matters it may choose to give advice on are: specific tenure-track hiring requests; the balance between tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty; senior hires; new hiring initiatives; hires of opportunity.
  • The Committee will meet as necessary with other committees and task forces, e.g., the Budget Advisory Committee, CCAP, and TTAC; it will receive from other committees information necessary to its functioning; and it will meet as necessary with departments and programs seeking to make hires; and it may respond to any issue brought to its attention by any segment of the College community.

A complete description of the committee's functions, authority, operations, and membership can be found in the Articles of Government, Article V, Section 3.
