*When a faculty member is appointed in more than one department, normally one is primary and the others are secondary. The primary department assesses overall academic performance and recommends an action to the Dean and Provost. Secondary BSD departments assess the contribution to the secondary departments and vote on this basis to concur with the recommendation of the primary department. Concurrence is also required when the secondary appointment is in a non-BSD department, School, Institute for Molecular Engineering, or in an interdivisional institute. The Cancer Center and any secondary unit providing resources essential to the proposed appointment should also concur. Ph.D.-granting Committees need not concur in cases involving an existing member, although they may do so. New secondary appointments to Ph.D.-granting Committees require a faculty vote.
