Appointment of Heads of Departments

The process by which heads of departments are appointed is managed by the Dean of the faculty and culminates in a recommendation by the Dean for consideration by the Institutional Planning Committee (IPC) and later Senate and Council.  Heads of departments (HoD) are appointed for a period of three years.  The appointments process is normally completed by 1 January in the year in which the new HoD takes office on 1 July. The period of appointment is usually from 1 July to 30 June such that the new HoD has a period of orientation and settling down and is involved in planning for the next academic year.

For more detail refer to the protocol for the Appointment of HoDs.doc
