The Office of Faculty Affairs is responsible for all aspects of administration pertaining to faculty. The office works with the Office of the Dean and is responsible for promotions, leaves, annual reviews, and other matters involving faculty appointments and activities. Additionally, we provide administrative support to faculty by maintaining an inventory of and issuing office supplies, and purchasing goods and equipment.

The Office of Faculty Affairs also provides support and oversight for the following:
