Committees

Many academic files, depending on review action, rank, and series must be reviewed by a committee of faculty with the expertise to ensure that the work of their colleagues supports the Health Sciences mission of exceptional teaching, research, and patient care.

For all Health Sciences Academic Affairs Dean's Office's File Submission Deadlines by Action, please review the Deadlines webpage.

In order for files to be reviewed in the most efficient manner, they should be submitted by specific deadlines in order to receive necessary committee review. Health Sciences faculty are reviewed by one or even two of the following four committees. Please see below for committee announcements, dates, scheduled deadlines for each committee:
