No.  8-3   Rev.  03-20-18    Date    11-12-80   


Administrators shall be eligible for academic rank, with all the rights and privileges of such rank as may be accorded them through the appointment process. Such administrative officers may acquire rank in their academic disciplines subject to the procedures outlined in PPM 1-5b (for the provost and vice presidents), PPM 1-17 (for deans, associate deans, and assistant deans), or PPM 8-6 (for all others). Their administrative functions and titles shall be distinct and separate from their academic ranks and positions. The removal of any person from an administrative position shall not impair academic rank in a specific department or college.
