Deputy Executive Officer

The Executive Officer may appoint a Deputy Executive Officer in consultation with the Provost. Deputy Executive Officers are released from their home colleges for one course each semester. The college is credited in the allocation system for Deputy Executive Officers. Arrangements for Deputy Executive Officers are negotiated by the Executive Officer with the college department chair and dean and agreed to in advance by means of a request from the Graduate Center provost. Since released time is granted by the faculty member's home college, faculty must get prior authorization from their college before undertaking doctoral administrative assignments, as well as for independent study, dissertation supervision, or teaching courses. The Deputy Executive Officer assists the Executive Officer as assigned.
