The Departmental Board is the department's highest decision-making organ. The Board sets overall objectives, prioritizations and strategies for the department. The Head of Department chairs the Board and, in collaboration with the Head of Administration, prepares the agenda to be addressed.

  • Recommendations for permanent, academic positions for which the Faculty is the appointing authority.
