The Creative Arts Advisory Committee advises the Teaching Resource Advisory Committee (TRAC) on longer-term and resource intensive non-ladder FAS appointments in arts practice, and advises the Humanities Tenure Appointments and Promotions Committee on cases where arts practice is a significant component of a ladder faculty appointment or promotion.
Its members also meet with leadership from FAS departments where teaching and research in the arts is housed and with the leadership from the professional schools as appropriate to discuss strategy and standards for developing Yale’s riches in the creative arts.
