The Social Sciences Divisional Committee recommends promotion or appointment with tenure, appoints divisional faculty to governance committees, and selects Hilldale Award recipients and Hilldale Lecture speakers.
Meetings are held during the academic year, on Wednesdays, starting at 1:30 pm (committee members are asked to hold the full afternoon).
All items for the agenda must be received by the deadline at which action is requested (deadlines appear in parentheses on the page “Meeting Dates”). If more cases are submitted than can be accommodated at a particular meeting, the divisional committee chair will consider factors such as reviewer availability and the urgency of the decision when determining which cases to postpone for review at a future meeting.
