Steps for appointing a faculty member from another college to a joint (secondary) position in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment:

1.    The chair of the CAFE department requests a CV and any desired supporting materials from the faculty member being appointed to a secondary position in this college. 

2.    The CAFE department chair prepares a letter of recommendation, including a statement indicating the support of the majority of the consulted faculty (this statement should be an exact vote count, i.e. 9 in favor, 2 against), and sends that, along with the CV and faculty letters to the CAFE Dean, via the office of the Associate Dean for Faculty Resources, Planning and Assessment (L-104 Ag North or via email). As of September 2016, the receiving department of a joint appointment does not have to provide a written statement from each faculty member approving of the appointment. 

3.    Once the CAFE Dean has approved the secondary appointment, the Dean of the primary college will be notified to generate an E02 (appointment form). 

4.    The EO2 will be circulated for signatures  by the faculty member, the chairs of both departments, and the deans of both colleges. Once all of the signatures are obtained, the EO2 and supporting materials (CV, chair letter, faculty letters) will be submitted for Provost and Board of Trustees approval.
