Faculty Resource Committee (FRC)


The Faculty Resource Committee reviews requests from departments and programs for ladder faculty resources and searches and recommends approved searches to the Dean. The Office of the Dean of the FAS monitors the search and appointment process by which faculty positions in FAS departments and programs are filled, from advertisement to final approval of the successful candidate.

The responsibility for allocating faculty resources resides with the Dean of the FAS, who chairs the Faculty Resource Committee (FRC), which includes the Deans of the Graduate School and Yale College, as well as the chairs of the area advisory committees and several FAS faculty members.
