Delegation of Authority--Dismissal of Academic Deans and Provosts
Section 100.4(c) of the Standing Orders of The Regents provides as follows:
100.4 Duties of the President of the University
(c) The President of the University, in accordance with such regulations as the President may establish, is authorized to appoint, determine compensation, promote, demote, and dismiss University employees, except as otherwise provided in the Bylaws and Standing Orders and except those employees under the jurisdiction of the Secretary, Treasurer, and General Counsel of The Regents.
Effective immediately, the authority granted to the President under Section 100.4(c) of the Bylaws and Standing Orders of The Regents regarding dismissal of academic Deans and Provosts is delegated to you. Pursuant to this Standing Order, action to dismiss academic Deans or Provosts shall be taken by you. I ask that I be informed of the circumstances of any dismissal action you take.
Please note that this delegation covers authority to dismiss only. I am retaining the authority to appoint, determine compensation, and promote academic Deans and Provosts as stated in Standing Order 100.4(c).
Authority to dismiss academic Deans and Provosts may not be redelegated.
