Letter from Provost Robert E. Palazzo to the Faculty

November 2, 2007

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to inform you that a Clinical Faculty Committee has been established to advise the Provost’s Office on matters of relevance to the clinical faculty during the faculty governance review process. I am grateful to the members of the committee (listed below) who have agreed to serve in this important role. This is an outstanding list of dedicated clinical faculty who have devoted themselves to serving the academic mission of Rensselaer.

Cognizant of the important contributions of our clinical faculty to our academic environment, the President has requested that Vice President for Human Resources, Curtis Powell and I work together to a) review compensation of clinical faculty to ensure appropriate compensation, b) develop a clear statement of clinical faculty benefits, c) review faculty teaching loads to clarify expectations for clinical faculty teaching responsibilities, and d) review opportunities for involvement of clinical faculty members in academic programming and faculty governance.

During the course of this effort, the Clinical Faculty Committee will interact with the Provost’s Office to advise on these and other matters as appropriate.

Again, I wish to than the following members of the committee for their service in this important function.
