Reappointment to a Department-Based Endowed Chair Without Committee Review

Read the description below to see how a candidate can be reappointed to an department-based endowed chair or professorship without a review by committee.

Note: Officially, reappointments to an endowed chair must be reviewed by a department review committee. However, an exception may be made if the chairholder's scholarly record continues to be highly distinguished, meritorious, and in harmony with the stated terms, goals and purpose of the endowed chair, and if the reappointment is in the best interests of the division or school.
