Section 10: Divisions and Duties of Division Chairs

The three academic divisions are the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences. Departments assigned to the divisions are indicated in the bylaws to the Faculty Constitution (see Section 17). Chairs are elected by division members in accordance with Sections 9 and 17 of the Faculty Handbook. Divisions may also elect representatives to certain committees. Along with the Provost, division chairs administer travel funds; they may also serve as representatives to certain committees and coordinate schedules, courses, and budgets.
