Assignment of Offices

A memorandum notifies faculty members when office space allocated to the School becomes available. Faculty members may present the Director with a written request for an office assignment if they would like to move. While the Director may exercise discretionary authority in the assignment of workspace and offices, when possible the Director should try to give preference to those at a higher rank (i.e., professor, associate professor, and assistant professor) and when rank is equal, preference may be given based on seniority. Faculty members are responsible for moving office supplies, books, journals, files, etc. and assistance is provided when moving desks.

The Director may exercise discretionary authority in the assignment of workspace and offices to other members of the instructional staff (i.e., part-time Faculty, Teaching Fellows, and Graduate Assistants) once all regular full-time Faculty members have been assigned offices.
