Faculty and librarian relations

Faculty and librarian relations are delivered through the coordinated efforts of the VPAC office and academic administrators.

Chairs and directors provide the first line of supervision, advice and guidance to faculty members, and are responsible for making recommendations to the dean and the provost regarding appointments, reappointments, promotion, tenure, and leaves. The University librarian is responsible for making recommendation regarding librarians. The Collective Agreement governs the university's working relationship with regular faculty and librarians.

The VPAC office works closely with chairs, directors, and deans and the university librarian to provide transparent processes to assist members in moving through their careers at the university, from appointment through to retirement.

  • provide advice regarding salaries and leaves
