The following procedure will be employed when Dean John Volakis’ participation is requested at any College of Engineering and Computing event initiated by centers, schools or departments of the college.
• The unit requesting the Dean’s participation should first contact the Dean’s Executive Administrator or his/her designee, to confirm the availability of the dates/times and to block them in the dean’s calendar.
• Once a date has been placed on hold, the unit must complete the Event Request Form (ERF) and send it to the Dean’s Executive Administrator or his/her designee. It is recommended that this process is completed at least six (6) weeks prior to the event but no later than three (3) weeks before the event date.
• The ERF will be reviewed within five (5) business days and Dean’s office will contact the unit via e-mail to communicate the dean’s decision.
NOTE: When the dates are held, they are blocked tentatively. The Dean’s participation is not confirmed until the unit receives confirmation from the Office of the Dean.
