Request for Appointment to Endowed Positions
Appointment of faculty members to endowed positions is governed by HR82, University-named Chairs http://guru.psu.edu/policies/OHR/hr82.html. The process for requesting appointment of a faculty member to an endowed position is as follows:
The Department Chair provides a request to the Office of Faculty Affairs. The letter should address the candidate’s eligibility for the endowed position as defined in HR82 and specify the effective date and term (if applicable). The request should be addressed to the Dean and include the individual’s CV. A copy of the endowment guidelines must also be attached to the request.
The Office of Faculty Affairs will review and confirm that eligibility requirements are met.
The Dean will review all requests, and will decide whether to forward the request to the Executive Vice President and Provost of the University, who makes the final decision.
