The members elected to the DAC will also serve on the Nominating Committee (see Article III, #2ai).
The purpose of the Nominating Committee is two-fold: (1) to develop a slate of candidates who will stand for election to the Standing Committees of the School of Medicine and (2) to review and advise the Dean on proposed decanal appointments to the Standing Committees of the School of Medicine.
The Office of Faculty Affairs selected ten candidates in each category to run for the initial Dean’s Advisory/Nominating Committee faculty representatives. Successful candidates will serve a one-year term. In subsequent years the Nominating Committee will select the candidates.
