P & T Committee

The Committee is composed of 16 members, each of whom is a tenured professor.

The Dean appoints the committee’s members for four-year terms, which results to four new appointments annually. The Dean considers the distribution of the College’s faculty across the compensated academic pathways and attempts to ensure that the Committee’s membership, by academic pathway, is proportional to that of the faculty as a whole.

Annually, the Chair-elect of the Committee is appointed by the Dean from among the four Committee members who are entering their third year of service on the Committee. This individual serves as Chair during his/her fourth year of service on the Committee. The Associate Dean for CME & Faculty Center serves as the Executive Secretary of the Committee and does not vote. Members of the staff of the Faculty Center support the work of the Committee.
