Ranked Faculty Service

Faculty should consult with their program chair and/or dean regarding service opportunities and their individual commitments on an annual basis.

The Ranked Faculty Service page provides a preliminary guide to college-wide service and some other division- or program-wide opportunities that are standard across the college. This is not an exhaustive resource - additional service opportunities may exist.

Faculty should refer to their program chair for information about program-specific service opportunities, and to their dean for additional division-specific service opportunities.

Academic Affairs would like to develop an FAQ for all faculty, and we need your input and questions in order to make it a helpful resource.

If there's a question that you think all faculty could benefits from having the answer to, please send an email to with the subject "Portal FAQ Suggestion." We'll add to our FAQ page as we hear more from you about what would be the most helpful.
