Tenure Track Appointments in More Than One Unit Within NYU
Process for requesting a Cross Appointment for School of Engineering faculty
- Faculty member consults with his or her home Department Chair about a possible cross appointment with another department.
- The home Department Chair agrees to support a cross appointment if approved by the “new” department; the home Department Chair sends a request to the School of Engineering Dean to ask if he would support a possible cross appointment; the Dean approves potential cross appointment
- The two Department Chairs agree on the terms of the cross appointment, including any changes in distribution of teaching and service responsibilities
- The home Department Chair notifies the School of Engineering Associate Dean for Academic Administration of the new cross appointment; the Associate Dean completes the Cross Appointment form with Department Chairs and Deans and submits the form to the Provost’s office.
