The School of Public Health is solely responsible for secondary appointments in its four departments.
If the primary appointment is in the School of Public Health, then the secondary appointment will be maintained by the secondary department.
If the primary appointment is in another area of the university, then the secondary appointment will be maintained by the secondary department and will follow the process of the primary department.
Please note that the Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs will need to approve the secondary appointment for faculty who have primary appointments outside of the School of Public Health prior to the secondary appointment being processed.
To make a secondary appointment, the chair of the appointing department should complete the secondary appointment form and forward it to the chair of the faculty member’s home department. Once both chairs have signed off on the secondary appointment, the appointing department will then send the form along with the faculty member's CV to Faculty Affairs for approval.
Please complete the termination form when submitting a request to terminate a faculty member.
Information on the termination policy is located in the Handbook of Academic Administration under Chapter 14.
